November Non-Fiction Writing Challenge


I’m not at all sure I’m up to the challenge, but I’m in. November is NaNoWriMo (National  Novel Writing Month). A writing coach who works with people who write nonfiction (like me) has launched WNFIN (Write NonFiction in November). I decided that is the challenge to take on.

It’s hard to say if I’ll finish the project in the month of November (who in their right mind chose NOVEMBER with Thanksgiving and    – for those with children in Portland Public Schools – the (lack of ) school schedule??  Regardless, I’m using this to launch my desire to finish writing my book on weight management for people with IDD by the end of 2012.

I won’t be posting everything on my blog at, given that I’m not sure how they’ll turn out. But I will post here. So if you want to comment on the process, insert your questions, share your stories, this is the place!

I do best when I know people are interested in the end result, so please participate!  I promise to make it worth your while.

Thanks for going along on the ride with me!
