Hypergraphia is a condition that causes people to transcribe their thoughts uncontrollably. I don't suffer from it in the clinical sense, but I may be borderline. My blog is the cyber-wall where I spray paint my thoughts for all to see. By the way, if you came here directly through blogger --if your page has no yellow frames and no pretty pic of me in the top left corner -- you may want to visit my main site at www.hypergraffiti.com, where you can read this blog and much much more.


I'm Trudy Morgan-Cole, a writer from St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada. My books include "The Violent Friendship of Esther Johnson," "Esther: A Story of Courage," and "Deborah and Barak." I'm also a married mom of two, a teacher in an adult-ed program, and a Christian of the Seventh-day Adventist kind. I blog about writing, reading, parenting, teaching, spirituality, and shiny things that catch my eye.

NaNoWriMo, Day One

I guess I'll get this posted while it's still November 1. I have many deep thoughts to share on the wisdom of writing 50,000 words in the month of November, and on the month of November in general, which is always kind of an oddly reflective time for me.

But these thoughts must wait till tomorrow. Because I have written 1770 words today on top of my teaching, parenting, and other duties -- all of which have been rather tiring today. On the good side, I like what I've written of my NaNo novel so far and I'm glad to be embarked on the annual adventure once again.

In place of Deep Thoughts, I give you the last of the Hallowe'en pics from yesterday, and leave you to ponder them as I go to sleep. Good night.

The kids are adorable!

Hooray on the writing! I got in 1064 words last night, a good effort for me. I've never finished NaNoWriMo before, but I've never started out with a plot and a character before either :-)

I have to add you to my buddy list, Kim -- I didn't realize you were doing it again this year! Good luck!

Part of me wishes I had the courage to try NaNoWriMo...part of me is glad I haven't done so.

Does it have to be a novel?
