And They're Off...

NaNoWriMo started for those of us on the East coast an hour and twenty minutes ago. An hour and ten minutes in I had written 1711 words! I can't say anything but, WOW!!! I had expected to start slow and maybe manage a couple hundred, but I've already surpassed my daily minimum, and there are still 22 and a half hours in the day.

Of course, I'm going to bed as soon as I finish this, because I can no longer spell, and I'm having trouble keeping my eyes open. I knew I should have cracked open the Nutter Butters and Nutella tonight.

As far as story, my first MC has a totally different voice than I'd expected, and she works as a receptionist at a pediatrician's office. Where the heck did that come from? So far, it's looking good, and a few hours from now, all three characters will be onstage, as it were.

Will I be able to sustain the letter writing thing for the rest of the novel? I certainly hope so. Yay me!
