And They’re Off!

NaNoWriMo is off and running. I got my quota in today on my novel. I am going to have to compress the schedule a little bit. I was a little late to work. I am still on the fence about this novel. I need to loosen up a little and let things happen.

Having won NaNoWriMo once, that is having written fifty thousand words and told most of a story, I am now confident that I can string fifty thousand words together in a thirty day time frame. This time around I am much more concerned with finding fifty thousand words that tell a compelling story.

I have a good premise. I’ve sketched some main characters with a lot of potential. I have figured out some of the abuse that I’m going to put them through. I know what the characters want and what kind of tension that will generate between them. At this point all that remains is to kick back, let loose, and enjoy the ride.

It’s heartening to note that NaNoWriMo is getting more attention from outside of the writing circle. It has been featured on the Twitter feed Angry Santa Elf.

Starting first day back at work with and finally writing my tell-all “Why Do the Good Die Young But Santa Lives to Be 946?”

Well, I better get to bed. There are a lot of words to be written tomorrow, not to mention the coding that must be done. And a bit of paper work here and there. Nothing major.

Sweet dreams, don’t forget to tell the ones you love that you love them, and most important of all, be kind.
