What Have I Done? Oh, Yeah…National Novel Writing Month

Jesi Kay

Jesi Kay, poet and aspiring novelist, was born in the Texas panhandle where wide skies, lazy summer days, and rolling thunderstorms sparked her imagination and left lasting memories in her blood. An early reader, poetry and mythology were her passions. So much so that when she was ten years old her step-father gave her his college mythology textbooks to read, which were full of classic poetry and more than enough tales to fill her romantic and inquisitive nature. Jesi loves reading, art, going to the theater, the romanticism of the Victorian era (but not the missing conveniences of indoor plumbing and central air conditioning), running when the heat and humidity cooperate, and cold weather so she can wear her favorite boots and knitwear. Also, she still has those college mythology textbooks, a little worse for wear over time but still intact and telling their stories to her. Jesi is a contributor at The Well Tempered Bards blog and at www.octpowrimo.com.

    I have done it a couple of times I do plan on joining in once again this year. I had problems with my computer and never got to finish last years.

      Hi Brenda! I’m not sure if I’m joining 2018’s or not. I’ve been doing fine writing with an accountability partner over the summer and I am doing October Poetry Writing Month (Begins today!) and I’m concerned NaNo might be too much for me (again) this year. But we’ll see. I am hoping to actually work on actually (FINALLY) putting together my first poetry collection during November and really just want to focus on that and not add any more pressure. I’m worried that would simply make me feel overwhelmed. But we’ll see. I tend to change my mind at the last minute so you never know. LoL
