NaNoWriMo Progress: Day 1

I won't post every day about this, but hey, it's my first day.

Quota to keep on pace: 1,667 words per day.

Day 1 word quota: 1,667 words
Day 1 total: 2,001 words. Woo!

Mood: Diggin' it. That first two thousand was a lot easier than I'd expected. I should enjoy this mood while it lasts, because next week I'll probably be driving myself insane.

Thoughts on book: Holy crap, it's schizophrenic already. The tiniest hints of a plot are coming out. It's gonna be weird. No big surprise.

Ninja count: 0. Against all odds, this may be a ninja-free novel.


  • Is this novel in blog form? Come on, mine is! All the cool kids are doing it online!

  • Nah. I can't write this for public consumption. It'd skew everything. "What would Mom think?" Feh.

    My novel may very likely never be read by another human. Knowing that frees me up to do whatever the hell I want. Which is a whole lot more fun.

    By the way, I'm still ahead of quota, at about 3700 words. I'd hoped to reach 4000 last night, but I hit a bump.

    Brushing my teeth this morning, I figured out how to get past the bump. Hoo-hah! Tonight should be a productive one.

  • Are there going to be any real-life experiences featured in your novel? You know, I was thinking it might be funny if the main character stumbles home after a long night of drinking and yarfs in his kitchen sink. Funny enough, but the best part is that he lives in a cheap apartment house and it's all connected. Which means the quiet little Chinese couple next door will wonder what the hell is coming up in their kitchen drain.

  • Ahem.

    Had I any real-life experiences like that, yes, I would probably include them.



    And it was the bathroom sink, not the kitchen.

  • Glad you're considerate enough to do it in the bathroom sink and not the kitchen.

    It still rates as one of the best yarfing stories I know.
