NaNoWriMo – Day 1

[Reading Time: 2 – 2 minutes]

What an exciting day! I managed to get more than 2,000 words written. No, they are not in order. In fact, they are parts of the story which will be put together much like a jigsaw puzzle as I find those pieces to fit. But I am writing and writing some semblance of a story.

I started in the early wee hours of the morning and managed just under 300 words before getting sleepy. I resumed later in day after adjusting to the change from daylight savings time and making a late breakfast for my family. Hunger has a way of interfering with the creative juices.

I did not write the remaining 1,700 plus words in one sitting and I may add to them yet tonight. I have taken breaks, interacted with the family, blogged [at my main page and now here], visited others’ blogs and left some possibly poignant comments. It could have been gibberish, but people are always so nice and forgiving of such things. Especially when they know you are in the throes of 50,000 words, a novel [my first], and still have all those other mundane responsibilities to handle [family, school, housework, blogging, etc., etc., etc.].

Are you participating? Is this your first time or have you done this before? I would love to know how it’s going for you or any words of wisdom you wish to share.

Oh, if you would like to be my writing buddy, that would be *awesome*! Just friend me.
