Greetings, readers and writers! It’s the first day of NaNoWriMo 2015 and we’re about to begin penning our masterpieces!
Of course, some of us rebels have already started. As I said before, I’m using this years NaNo to finish Secret Book. I already have 79,891 words, many of which will be discarded in editing and rewrites, I’m sure.
I did officially sign up, because a friend from my Doctor Who fan group is moderating our regional NaNo group, and he encouraged me to do so for group points. Fine by me–I’m happy to contribute, in my own small way.
Besides, the Doctor would want me to.
Today, we have a write-in at the library. I’ll go to that for a little while, though I’m not sure how well I can write in a room full of people. Might be fun, and it will get me out of the house for a bit. Plus, I can clear up the word count issue–do I start with my count, or do it from scratch? It won’t take 50,000 words to finish this book.
Whether you’re doing NaNoWriMo, or you’re just getting your autumn cleaning done, today will be a busy one. Here is an appropriate piece of music to get you started. Everybody ready–set–GO!
UPDATE: Word count today: 1,722. Woo hoo!
