NaNo, day 4. Really? Only 4 days so far?

Somehow it seems like so many more days than a measly little four days.  But I did manage to hit my goal of a word count total of over 15,000 before the end of the day today.  I didn’t beat it by much, but that’s not the point.  The point is, I set a goal and worked toward it…and worked….and worked.

Where yesterday’s writing was quick and easy, today’s was more of a struggle.  At least the first writing session of the day was a struggle.  When I sat down for the second session, something clicked.  I kind of changed the narrator’s tone and was off and running.  I was able to stop in a good place…a place that will be easy to pick up and head off from tomorrow…you know, after an exhausting 12 hour workday.

For all of you who are participating in NaNoWriMo this month, I hope you have at least a few of those quick and easy days, when the words flow through your fingertips, and your characters take over the story…at least for a while.

  2. Great job! Are you sure Spook and Scout aren’t tapping away at the keyboard while you’re at work? 😉

    • Well, they may be writing their own NaNo novels…Spook’s would probably be something about terrorists and sneak attacks and Scout’s would probably be about abuse and how to survive it.
