Days 1 and 2 – NaNoWriMo

It’s official!  November is here!

I stayed up until midnight on the 31st to kick the 1st off right, and so far, I’m off to a strong start – over 5,000 words in the past two days.  I might write a little bit more before I head off to bed tonight.  I’m trying not to applaud myself too much, because I know from last year that these are the easy days.  When the project is fresh and exciting, it’s easier to find the words and the ideas.  I know that soon, I’ll hit that wall of “what do I write now?  what should happen next?”

So far, nothing crazy is happening with my characters – my main character’s mother is a little more intense than I originally planned, and my main character is turning out to be slightly more introverted than I wanted (I tend to write introverts – probably because I am one), so I need to work on that.  Also, found a way to make my prologue creepier than intended – so that’s a win.

I hope everyone is enjoying their writing so far, and I hope you all are meeting your word counts!  Keep typing!
