NaNoWriMo and Movember are two exceptionally great things that come about each November. This year, I’m not participating in either, but I know people who are, and I want to do everything I can to cheer them on.
To kick off this cheerleading racket, I would like to lead the cheer for one Devon MacGregor, who is participating in her very first NaNoWriMo! Devon, as you may or may not know, is my illustrious wife and mother to my daughter Aliena, and Devon claims she is not a writer. This may be the case, if you count being “more of an editor” the same thing as “not a writer.” But she’s got the skills, and she’s got a graduate certificate in publishing from the University of Denver, so don’t think for one moment that this lady can’t put down 50,000 words in a thirty-day window.
Her novel is unexpectedly science-fictiony, and because I live with her, I’ve had some sneak previews. I love what I see so far. When she hit 15,000 words, I high-fived her so hard I shattered my hand.
Let’s give this girl all the cheer she can get! GO, DEVON, GO! GO, DEVON, GO!
I’d really love to link to her author page, but she doesn’t really have one, so instead, I’ll encourage everyone to go visit her Instagram feed. She’s really talented visually, as well.
