The kickoff day for NaNoWriMo has passed and I managed to log 3,077 words on the new story. Not bad for a first day. The night before I could hardly sleep and when I did I had nightmares that I had somehow reached the end of the deadline and not started the project. Some of the anxiety stems from not having a solid plan for the story, but that is a hurdle that I will have to jump when I reach it.
On a different note I finally did a print of my first manuscript today. It came to just over 200 double spaced pages which for me is pretty mind blowing. I plan to set it aside for all of November and some of December before tackling the big next phase edit.
Happy Writing, more NaNo updates to come!
