How did your NaNoWriMo Day 1 go? 🙂
I logged 883 words today. I didn’t think I’d get 1 written…so I’m fairly pleased. But I did fall short of my 2K word goal…guess I’ll have to catch up later on in the month.
As so often happens when you have a project you absolutely need/want/must work on, life seems to pull out all the stops. Obligations, issues, potty training disasters (x2)…all can put writing at the bottom of the to-do list, where it so often stays. Then you wake up one winter morning and realize that NaNoWriMo was over a month ago…and you have nothing written whatsoever.
I was determined…absolutely determined…not to let Day 1 get past me without at least something to show for it. With the day I’ve had, I would have settled for 10 words. But I set the timer for 30 minutes, told the kids to blitz clean their room, sat the baby in her high chair with some of those strange dissolving vegetable puffs for a snack, turned on my iTunes Writing Mix, and blasted out 883 words.
The buzzer went off, and reality promptly dropped the anvil right back on my head. But it’s all good.
I got 883 words done.
