Sorry, I lost this thread. Although I think we talked about word count on another thread.

That is exciting that you taught about the Mayan culture. My GD was able to visit some ruins in Belize. It was the height of her trip. She sold candy at high school the whole year so she could participate in that field trip. Thought she was pretty industrious. They also went rafting in a cave. That would have been my highlight, but she wasn't impressed. Go figure.

I was up early this morning and have finished the NaNoWriMo April Camp with 30,018 words. Now, I need to get back to reading and cleaning.

Have a good day,

Hi, I am not planning a book for this; it is more of a record.

I have 50,017 words I did in November. I found more papers I have about the Maya and I think I will add to that book in November. I was not going to do it again but may. It was a book but not one to be published. I just wanted to do the challenge. It is about the Maya and a lost book. I have studied the Maya, taught about them in a museum, and have been to many of the sites.

Glad you were able to reduce it. That is still a small book.

Working on getting daughter's stuff organized in garage so it will be easy to load van when I head to her in a week.

My daughter started that with her cat with her bathroom sink and had to break the habit. emoticon

I found I could reduce my number of words so I decreased to 30,000 works instead of 50,000 words.

Have a good night. emoticon

Some of the recipes are how to scrub the tub or recipes in living well with gratitude. Some kind of recipe for living along with stories. Whatever grabs me and seems to go with the recipe or vice versa.

Think I will write about my friend's cat who liked to sit under the drippy tub faucet.

Chuckling out loud here. Copy and paste your post and include it in your story so you don't forget it. Word count you know..

Today, I am going to write about my two horses and a cat. Heading out.

My daughter did not know about the notes.

Cathy- I was telling her about your writing and she remembered a story I have told. She was not yet born. My husband worked in real estate and was a designer of custom homes so worked late. One time he came home early and saw I had made liver for the kids and they were eating the meal. He say something like he did not like liver. That was the last time the kids ate liver.

I am way behind on my writing. I write when I can.

Thanks for keeping posting. It is an automatic reminder to go write another short story. This time I added GDs Gallo Pinto recipe from her Home Stay family in Nicaragua. I need to write more about her experiences there, but at least I got the bare bones in.

How are you faring?

I opted to write 5000 words of new stuff. so my word count will be higher due to importing old stories, but I still want 5000 new.

I had an idea last night and should have told Alexa. I think she has a note option. Anyway, I forgot it now. I do have another idea that just came to me. Off to write.

Leona, Thank you for making me a Buddy at Camp NaNo. I got myself set up. I see I tried to get started on the Recipes for Living a couple times with no forward momentum. Since it is camp and this is for my purpose, I copied and pasted my devotionals into it and then I wrote another 500 words yesterday morning about the time my pony dumped me in the road when she startled about a snake. Today, I think I will write about Grandma and making cinnamon rolls with her.

Cathy- I have made copies of the handwriiten recipes from family and have them in a binder. I like your idea of the stories.
One bread recipe I have from my aunt to my mother is my grandmother's bread recipe. I only have one page of the letter but on the back side she says "Mom got notice today that her sister (in Italy) has passed". Too bad I do not know the date or the name. I am still checking.

Have a good day,

Glad you started this page. Thank you. Mo...Mon...Month all the same to me.

I haven't been able to participate in NaNoWriMo due to my shoulder in a couple of years, but really loved the challenge. I plan to work again on my Recipes for Living book I started a few years ago. Mostly the stories and advice handed down from my parents. Want to give it out to GKs when I get done.

I forgot all about camp until I saw the email notification of this post. Fortunately, I had just come up with a story idea minutes before seeing the email.

I didn't even notice the misspelling in the title.

This will be my first time at the Camp. I did accomplish the 50,000 words on NaNoWriMo in 2020.
I will be writing My Travels.
