Not yet three o’clock on day 1 and I’ve reached my target for today.
Wait a mo while I pat myself on the back.
But that was day 1. I knew exactly what I wanted to write, so I just went ahead and wrote it – not exactly straight through from beginning to end, because I never write like that. When I reached the end of chapter 1, I went back and padded it out. If anyone says that’s not how you’re supposed to do NaNo, I’ll say: hard luck, that’s how I’m doing it.
What about the other days? What’s going to happen when I get to the sticky middle and can’t decide how to continue? I don’t know. I’ll cross those stepping stones when I come to them. If I fall off, I’ll just climb back on.
In the meantime, I’m happy. 🙂
Hope you are, too.

I’m not at my daily goal yet, but I’ve got almost 1,000 words down and it’s only 8:30 in the morning, so it’s definitely looking like I’m on my way. Yay! Congrats on making such a great start!
Yay! Now we’re buddies. 1,000 words at 8:30 is fine. Good luck with the other 49,000!
