Doing the Nano Dance

Winning Nanowrimo

It’s been awhile since I’ve participated in NanoWriMo. In fact the last time I tried I only ever made it to just above the 11K mark with the same manuscript I just finished using NanoWriMo to do so with. What is it like to win, satisfying. You get a virtual certificate and a badge. Most people would scoff at that and say well who cares, NanoWriMo isn’t about accolades or awards per say. It’s about a personal goal. It’s about you, the writer. Setting a goal, making yourself accountable and responsible for your actions. In a way, it’s a personal, inner competition that just happens to benefit a charity and foundation that encourages our youth to take up the art of writing and reading. I could go for that any day, teaching the next generation what I view as a sacred art and set of skills. One that has gone from word of mouth to paper and beyond. Encouraging literacy and building stories is something both I and Three Little Sisters has always stood for. All authors, all stories, all voices heard no matter the color of skin, the race or culture, the orientation or social status, age or anything else – everyone deserves to be heard.

By way of lead and guns, I speak my oath and vow:Tamashii
I will act with honesty and loyalty,
I will honor justice and mercy,
I will move in courage and politeness,
I oppose all corruption and exploitation,
I will take responsibility for my actions.
I stand true to these principles in respect and integrity,

for this pledge I do freely make of my own accord and upon my honor.

– Tamashii: The Soulful
