So, Nano is on us again.
For those not in the loop, Nano is actually "Nanowrimo" - National Novel Writing Month. The idea behind it is a support group for people to knuckle down and write a novel. The aim is 50,000 words... which is 1667 per day. There's websites and trackers and writing groups and everything, all over the world, to try and help you reach that total of 50,000 words, which is the bare bones of a novel.
Today is Day 1. It's 11:30am. I've written 1405 words. I promised that I would write 2000 before I would be allowed to go and watch the show I recorded last night. This is not a good start. I should've written 2000 words before 11am.
Also, I've researched house prices in my area, the cost of pest control (goddamn those spiders are out of control) and emailed my husband 3 times.
Yeah. I'm procrastinating. But my characters are not behaving. **sigh**
Okay, back to it. Shane (he's my character) is microwaving himself a meal and one for his unexpected visitor. Classy act he is. **double sigh**
Nano total: 1405
Today's mantra: Keep going
Sometimes things just need to be said.
