NaNoWriMo 2014 Week 1 Update
Word Count Goal As of Today: 11,665 Actual Word Count: 10,558 In previous years, I've sailed through the first week of NaNoWriMo with a sense of lightness and ease.

I'll reach today's word-count goal, no problem. Week 1 Plan: In week 1, I wanted to write new material for The Grass In California, my sweeping, 4-decade, state......
