I'm Crazy

  Guys, I am certifiably crazy.  I'm doing NaNo this year.  Yeah.  I know.  Really crazy.  I can hardly ever get past 3 chapters when I try to write a book.  And I have trouble with writing prompts that require 1,000 words.  And no, I'm not saying these things so that you all will tell how not crazy I am.  I'm showing you the kinds of things that I let my older sister Melody talk me into doing.

  Anyway on to the actual story.  I have a slight....okay, more then slight obsession with Vermont farmhouses.  I blame it on Grace Livingston Hill novels and White Christmas.  And I was swooning on and on about how I wanted an Old-Fashioned Christmas in a Vermont farmhouse.  So Melody says, "Well I can't give you an actual Christmas in a Vermont farmhouse, but you can give your imagination one.  Go write a story about it."  So I decided to stick our family (with some adjustments) into a Vermont farmhouse and give them an Old-Fashioned Christmas.  It is currently titled, Christmas In Vermont, very unoriginal, but I haven't thought of a better one.  Half the kids are married, the Triplets (I turned myself into triplets, 2 girls, 1 boy, and based one of the girls off of  my real life twin who is actually 3 years older then me and not related to me by blood), are home from Dublin for Christmas, and another sister is home from Korea for Christmas bringing a guy home with her.  Oh, and it's an Irish family.  So basically, it's just this big family having a wonderful Christmas and sharing the love, joy and faith that the Season always fosters in me.

  It is 11:05 on November 1st, and I wrote 3,753 words throughout the day while canning applesauce.  I am fairly proud of myself.  I am also very tired which is why this is probably the most rambling, ridiculous post I have ever written and I can't believe I am actually going to to hit publish.  But I wanted to post about it and nothing sensible is coming out of my brain right now.
