First Day of NaNoWriMo 2012

Holy crackers, Batman, I got 2,207 words done.

That’s counting some notes I took, since I need to do some further research for this scene.  So technically, I guess it probably worked out to around 2,150 words all together.

A 50,000-word novel written over a month works out to around 1700 words a day, roughly.  To do that, you just have to turn off that inner editor and write.   Part of the thing is that you don’t stop to look stuff up, a bad habit I have.

Well, okay, I stopped one time to go in my chat room and make a light saber noise when “Main Title” of Return of the Jedi came on.

Nerd and proud of it.

And I stopped again when my phone rang.  It was a recruiter for a job I applied for in April.  Better late than never, I guess.

I wanted to put a NaNoWriMo banner or something on my posts, but for some insane reason, I can’t even sign up on the site.  So screw them.

I hope everyone who signed up is doing well.  See you tomorrow!
