Day 1

Dear Diary,

Today, in between running and painting Young Son's room and a couple of trips to the hardware store (and a nap), I cranked out the first 2230 words on my NaNo story. Yeah, it's pretty much all 'throat clearing', but nobody said it had to actually go anywhere. I'm going for sheer volume, baby!

So far my character has gone back to work after her lunch break, finished her day, come home from work, gone straight to bed, woke up too early when she realized she missed her period, and spent five hours writing at her kitchen table. And peed, twice that we know of.

2230 words = not quite 24 hours.

Drone on, much?

I suppose for this kind of a project it's a blessing that I can ramble on for hours about nothing. It's going to be a long 30 days for my poor character. Pity her.

Tomorrow: Another character! Rejoice!

  1. I'm just barely over 2000, and have written mostly expository back-story. BUT, that still leaves me with 48000 words to get through. And yet, I'm blog surfing rather than face the next scary writing chunk!
