Taking Chances

Sleep “E” here, working to finalize Taking Chances, a creative non-fiction. This will be my 2nd year of NaNoWriMo.

I love NaNo because it gives me the avenue to focus and hone the craft I love. I'm a writer. I write. It's what I do. Last year was my first year. I was nervous about the commitment, and whether or not I could write 50,000 words in a month. Turns out, I only wrote 25,000 words...MORE than I would have written otherwise.

A close friend, Danny Rodriguez, put me on to NaNo and what he was able to accomplish through it. I'm grateful he shared the opportunity with me. And I'm grateful to have met Rochelle and the spectacular team of writers and writing she helped cultivate leading the Dayton NaNoWrimo group! The encouragement through the Write-Ins, Word Wars, and wotivation (trying to keep the alliteration going) is simply amazing and keeps us inspired through deadlines, schedules, and carpal tunnel


  1. Thank you, Brendan for sharing your story, you Nano rebel you. Good luck and happy writing!

  2. "MORE than I would have written otherwise." Amen. That's what it's all about. Write on!
