NaNoSEWMo

I am not a writer.  I have never purported to be a wordsmith of any sort. The rules of grammar have always appealed to me in their strange, logical, somewhat mathematical way.  I used to actually enjoy diagramming sentences (no really, I did.), but I digress.

I’m not a writer, but, as I’m sure you are aware, November is time for NaNoWriMo. My husband has decided to participate. And since I am suffering from sewing burn out, and my dear friend Tricia recommended that I do something for myself in order to break through the burn out barrier, I have decided to participate also. But I’m not going to write, I’m going to sew.  I’ve been wracking my brains to come up with a goal that is similarly difficult to attain as the standard NaNoWriMo 50K word novel.  Should I work in yardage? Sew 20 yards of fabric in November…but then, what counts as a yard?  What if I use only a small square of a yard for a quilt – does that count?  It doesn’t feel right. So, maybe I should work on my planned holiday gifts? But those aren’t set in stone and I don’t think that would be a difficult goal.  Finally, I decided upon 1 item for each day of the month: 30.

Who knows, by the time NaNoSEWMo is over, I may have wracked up enough words in blog posts to actually participate in NaNoWriMo…

No really, I’m asking, who knows?
