NaNoWriMo: Day 01

November 2nd, 2012 Comments off

Well, time to get this show on the road! I’ve known it’s been coming for a few weeks now, and ready or not, it’s time to kick off the NaNoWriMo.


November, the perfect time to write 50k words in a novel form. The weather is chilly enough to discourage doing any other outdoor activities (except for training for that marathon-thing…) and perfect for spending time writing in a coffee shop :)


The daily goal of 1700 words is proving to be quite tough, and┬átoday’s total so far is 850. Granted I started writing around 11pm, and as it’s past midnight, so I probably should stop for tonight. ┬áThe tiredness is having an adverse affect (or is it effect, I can never remember) on the words I’m trying to string together. I’m finding as it gets later and later, there are move and more passages that I don’t even really remember writing.


Since tonight won’t be a goal-hitting kind of night, it’s going to make tomorrow pretty tough: 2,500 words. Whew, that’s going to be a big writing day. In addition to needing to create 2,500 words out of the ether, there’s still lots to prep for our annual turkey fry / LSU v. Alabama game. Cleaning the house, yard, and brining the turkey are all also on the docket for tomorrow. Thug Life.


Post Script:

I had to edit this post the following morning, apparently being really tired and blogging aren’t a great idea – who knew? :)
