Two things today.
First of all, I joined NaNoWriMo! I’ve been keeping an eye on it for a few years, and have been interested in doing it. But I never have. So a couple nights ago I signed up for it!
Can I do 50,000 words in a month? I don’t know. But I’m going to try. It’s a lot for me to swallow! My Grand Novel weighs in at about 43,000(?) or so words. That’s my record. So 50K will be pushing it.
Yesterday was a wash. Brilliance was not at my command, and what I did write felt corny or cheesy or not-me. It felt like I was reading kids fiction from the 1960’s. :p Now kids fiction from the 1960’s is okay…but something about it felt just so blah.
So today, I sat down, wrote out Weslie, and started in on my novel. It is yet to have a title, but I finished out the day (so far) weighing in at 1,786 words.
Is it bad? Maybe. But I got to 1,786! Only 48,214 to go! Yaaaay!
I missed Montague’s birthday! It was yesterday, the 1st. I opened up his character document today, and realized that I missed it! Ugh! Can you believe it? Can I believe it? Can Montague believe it?
Public apology: Montague, I missed your birthday. 😦 Okay, it’s not really an apology…I’ve not known my character to bear a grudge. 🙂
Are we good? Okay.
