What a day

Posted by on November 2, 2009 at 9:22 am.

At the end of day one for NaNoWriMo I was already behind. Dang this social life of mine 🙂

Sundays are always busy for me and this one was worse (or better) than usual. In fact I started writing this blog around midnight and was nearly falling asleep on the computer so here it is Monday morning and I’m finally finishing it.

I stayed up until midnight on Saturday with several of the local NaNoers and at the stroke of 12+1 we started writing. To celebrate the occasion I had a glass of chocolate eggnog (President’s Choice has it and it’s good) with a shot of kahlua. I highly recommend it (if you’re under 19 of course -21 in the States) try it without the kahlua.

At the end of day 1 I’m at 1400 words. Only 300 behind schedule if I was doing a static daily goal. But as previously discussed, I’m a pantser. I write by the seat of my pants. Some days are crazy busy, so I know whatever i write will be crap. Other days I wake up running. the ideas are pouring out of my brain before my feet hit the floor.

Luckily, today, day 2, is one of those days and because of my flexible schedule, I can spend the day writing. I’ll be beyond todays static goal before noon.

Good Luck to all participants and good writing (don’t worry about quality, that’s why we edit in March)
