I am back for my 9th NaNoWriMo, 8th year as an ML, 3rd year with the Merrimack River/Lowell group, and (should I be so lucky) 8th win!
I am an academic librarian in Massachusetts with a passion for knitting, learning, writing, reading, and kittens. I grew up in Miami, but have live in MA for over 10 years. I have a cat, Sabine, and she is a teenager. Yes, a character is named for her in my epic novel.
In 2012 I will be doing NaNoWriMo with some distractions (as per usual). Two years ago I bought a home while doing NaNoWriMo and moved in to it in the middle of the month. Last year I had to write a literature review for my (now completed) second masters degree thesis. This year I will be remodeling my kitchen. It's not NaNoWriMo if I am not under tons of pressure.
