Oh, holy crap. I forgot how *hard* this is. Not the writing, but sticking to a schedule. I'm a lazy writer. I really am. I just sort of roll with it. When it comes, it comes. That does not work with NaNoWriMo! 50,000 words in 30 days.
I'm calling it quits for the day. According to my count I have 1,709 words written. Not bad. Not spectacular, but not bad. I think I'll get into the groove as it goes. I had a hard time getting the story started. I knew the first line, but after that...how do you get into the story? I had a few paragraphs written and they just didn't work. I had to delete all the way back down to the first line and start over. Much better now. :)
And I also rediscovered the fact that snippets of dialogue or scenes will come to me at horribly inappropriate times at work. And I have to get them down or I'll forget them! And they come out of order of course. But I jot them down and I'll get to those scenes eventually. Or not. Sometimes they don't quite happen the way I think they will and I have to rewrite or junk some stuff. But we'll see. It's early days.
Also I keep checking facts in my books. I probably shouldn't but I just hate writing down something and then having to remember to check it later. What if I miss something?
Also, new header! I found a cap of the scene with the machete and awesomehotDean! Don't mind me...
