Can I do it?

The end of NaNoWriMo is just around the bend and my word count is just over 38,000. That leaves 12,000 words left to write and 5 days in which to do it. Can I do it? I think so but life does tend to jump up and bite me on the rump when I least expect it and when I least need it. I'm a little behind so I'm a little worried about catching up but if I try and stay focused, I believe that I can meet this challenge head on and succeed.


Because I happen to be a very stubborn woman. I am hard headed and when I see something I want, I go for it and fight for it until I come out victorious. Ask my family, they'll tell you. Maybe that's a cultivated trait that came from being painfully shy when I was younger and rarely getting what I wanted; now that I'm older and don't have to be a wall flower, I can stand up and shout about what I want and have the means to go after my goals.

My dream is to write, to be a published writer. That's the only real dream I have left and it's the one I want to see come true more than any other that I've ever I'm going to continue to work at it until that dream is realized.

Go ahead and call me stubborn, tenacious, bull headed...I'll be the first one to agree with you :o)

So I suppose the question is not, Can I do's more, How close to the deadline will I come skidding in with my completed 50,000 words?
