My sweet girl was itching to write for NaNoWriMo again this year with their Young Writers Program, after trying it for the first time last year. Even when her Mama didn't write along with her (yes, I bailed...but, I worked diligently on my cheer leading skills!), she kept whipping her words into shape.
Last year, she worked with a special purple mechanical pencil and her Hello Kitty notebook, marking her words down by hand. This year, she put the computer keyboarding skills she's learning in school to use and typed her NaNo. As touch typing is a new skill still being honed, it was a little slower going. But, she is one determined kidlet and didn't let a challenge stop her.
Today, she passed her word count goal and verified on the site, making her a WINNER!!!
We are so proud she kicks her goals' backside and is already talking about jumping back into NaNo next year!
