Nanowrimo Day 1 – It begins…

Word count: 1432

Writing sessions: 3 (as of 5pm)

Doing fairly well. Got some words written before I left for work, and on the bus both way. Managed to forget my office key-card, and as I’m usually the first to flex-time in, ended up walking around the neighborhood listening to Storywonk podcasts, eating my apple and drinking my strawberry milk, until 9am. If only there had been a nice comfy place to write open that early.

I’m starting to wonder if I’ll run out of outlined plot before 50k. However, with Star Patrol that shouldn’t be much of a problem, as I’m also well familiar with the second adventure of these intrepid space adventurers – the Imperion Confrontation. So if I need to, I can just jump right into that storyline!

Write-in tonight at Williams coffee on the pier. Whoo-hoo!

So how’s your nano going?

    well done – working as well – I managed 4k today – I need to get well ahead this week (I have nothing else on) because next week is just crazy with people visiting, group meetings etc so hoping to hit 20 this weekend with the poss. that very little will get done next week

    hope I have enough plot to last!

    Was considering it again for 2011 but then broke my wrist. Typing is a real pain with only one hand, so it’s not going to happen.



  3. I spend the better part of the day with brainstorming and outlining my story, because I had not nearly enough info to start until this evening.
    In the past 4 hours, I’ve managed my first 1700-something words and they have turned out quite nice, I believe. I am finding the voices for story and the characters itself, slowly but steadily.
    So I treat myself now to read and answer some emails and blogs and forums 🙂


  4. Off to a solid start – 1769 today. Hopefully I can continue to build up a cushion so I’m not INSANE towards the end…but now I’ve probably jinxed it. 😉

    That sounds like a great start, I would’ve been really annoyed about the morning’s lost time! 🙂
