In addition to teaching, raising an 11 month old, using Kindles in my classroom and blogging about it, I am writing a novel. November is National Novel Writing Month, which spawned an organization called NaNoWriMo. Mere mortals sign up to write 50,000 words in 30 days, or 1,667 a day.
I keep track of my progress on the door to my classroom, and students have been cheering me on. I have 41,713 words as of today, and a reporter for our school newspaper interviewed me!
