    During WriMo i usually remember to eat… when i start shaking and headaching from a blood sugar crash. And i remember to get a drink of water when i’m so parched that i start coughing — although i’ll still put that off for a couple of hours…

    I’m once again participating in NaNo. I’ve skipped it for 2 years. Now I’m waking up my words and smiling the day through.
