#NoCarb #Diet Day 20: #Wine & #Chocolate Wins This Weekend; It’s #NaNoWriMo !

wine n choc

Oh wine and chocolate how I’ve missed you so!

This post will be short and sweet…. just like the delicious Chardonnay I am sipping on, accompanied by the “fun size” Twix you see pictured. The Atkins diet is just no match for Halloween candy and wine…. and writing a 50,000 word novel in 30 days. It’s NaNo time!

What’s that? It’s called NaNoWriMo which stands for “National Novel Writing Month.” Beginning in less than 30 minutes at the stroke of midnight, thousands of writers from across the nation will join me in meeting their goal of 1,666 words per day to reach 50K by Nov. 30.

I tried, and failed last year but this year I am full of vim and vigor, a little snark and sass, with a splash of wine for good measure. I will not let someone tell me not to write about them because it is “their story.” I lived it too. It is my story. I will not let “The B” tell me I am a narcissist who lives in the past. I will not let anyone bring me down. And most important tonight: I will not let myself get distracted by the five loud, shrieking teenagers hopped up on Halloween candy get me off to a bad start.

Kelp shakes will have to wait.

No carbs will have to wait.

My main goal this month, for the next 30 days, is to finally finish something I started. Just like that Van Halen song.

No more mood swings, no more food swings, ain’t nobody got time for that! It’s NaNo time! Ready, set, WRITE!
