Doing It Again!

Yes, I am doing it again! I am out traveling in the world wide web! If you have clicked over from citychickinthecountry.com, welcome over to Tickled Pink Tammy! Over here I try to live, well, Tickled Pink! I try to find some encouragement and most definitely humor every day in this big bad thing we all call life. I am glad you clicked over!

Back at the end of October, I traveled to Harrisburg, PA for a Bloggers Conference. I have not sat down and spilled onto cyber paper all of my thoughts and experiences just yet as I have been busy every day since November 1. No really…I have been posting over on Facebook what I have been up to. I have been participating in a national writing program, that I found out about the very last week of November last year. I decided to stay connected so I could maybe try it for November 2012. And I did!

It is call NaNoWriMo. Cute ring to it, eh? It stands for National Novel Writing Month. The purpose is to write everyday from November 1 to November 30 with the goal of reaching 50,000 words. Of course, if I could “talk” that goal, I would have most definitely been done by midnight. Midnight of November 1st that it!

But alas, we were to type or write and enter in our word counts each day. Just so you know, if your curiosity is killing you…I hit 50, 027 words last night at 11:43 PM! I got them entered before midnight and it quickly popped up a page that said:

WINNER!

Needless to say, I did not “win” anything except for bragging rights that I completed a 50,000+ word novel in a month. But…now the real work begins as I start the process to finish it up and tweak it by doing some editing. Know what I did though? I have already lined up my editor for January, so she can help me “fix” it! Hey, I’m not dumb–I know I’ll need some help!  Do you need an editor? Well, I might be an only child–but I do share! You’ll love her. She has helped me a lot this year with my writing and I am sure you will be pleased as well.  You can find her here: christianeditor.net. She’s fantastic! I don’t get any kick-backs, but if you mention, Tickled Pink Tammy, I am pretty sure she will have a little extra special something for you! Check her out!
In the meantime though, while not being here with all of you, I have been out traveling so to speak in bloggy land as well as the NaNoWriMo. Today in fact I was with one of my friends that I met in conjunction with the bloggers’ conference back in October. The fun part is that through the Facebook page for Allume newbies, I have been talking with her way before the conference and I have even guest posted over at her site before! (Ah! And she even let me come back!!!) 
I shared a little something from the conference over at her site today. To find it, click on these colored letters!  Thanks Donna, for allowing me to visit on your page in your little corner of cyber world! It was a blast!
…and that’s all I have to say about that!
Tammy
