Day 1 of NaNoWriMo: The Craziness Begins

The craziness has begun and by craziness… I mean NaNoWriMo!

As you read this post I’m on day 2 of NaNoWriMo, but as I write this I’m wrapping up day 1. I closed out day 1 with 2,820 words. Not bad for the first day. I’d have had more, but unfortunately the power went out on our whole street at almost 11:30 so no more writing for me unless I want to write by candlelight with pen and paper. I could, technically, write on my laptop–it’s charged, but there’s no internet and I thought the time might be better spent relaxing after the hectic first day.

(I added in the bit about the power after the power came back on.)

I’m still a bit anxious but I’m so excited about this NaNoWriMo. Things are quite a bit different me this time. 😀 I plotted out my novel using the Hero’s Journey and Tarot (an eCourse by Arwen Lynch). I had a great time doing it and made a NaNoWriMoPrep playlist of my journey outlining. I’m also excited because this a book I started last year but it needed a lot of work and it didn’t feel authentic to me, a good story but not real enough, so I’m starting from scratch–the only thing I kept was the prologue (the rest is stored in the closet of a Scrivener project).

Happy NaNo’ing. 😀
