NaNoWriMo – Day 2 and still writing

[Reading Time: 2 – 2 minutes]

The widgets are not functional just yet. With all the many persons participating it is much more important to have the site functional than the widgets. Maybe tomorrow. Hopefully by the end of the week. Today’s progress was pretty decent. I was a bit worried I would not meet my daily goal of 2,000 words. I not only met that goal, but I surpassed it by 143. Now I am at a total word count of 4,253. I am trying to build a buffer now in case I run into plot trouble or character development issues. Although the entire story is a bit by-the-seat-of-my-pants right now.

I am getting a bit excited, though. And of course my original thoughts on a story have taken on an entirely different direction. I am still using those thoughts as I feel they will have merit in development my main character’s background and give some insights into her quirks.

I do need to do some information gathering as well. I have decided to use my community as a backdrop. I was going to set it in a more populous area, but I have little access to those areas and want my story to have some accuracy in its setting.

Anyhow, I am going to keep this short and sweet today. To all of you participating in NaNoWriMo, may you find all the words you are looking for and they make some sort of sense at the end of it all.
