NaNo Day 1
(I decided to blog on my NaNo experience, but since I have no internet at home, I’ll be posting a few days late)
Day 1: 6844 words
I always like to start strong when I write, and today was no exception. I started a new word count document and pasted over the chapters as I completed them. If only NaNo had started a few days before so that Part 3 could be the start of my counting, but I just couldn’t stop writing.
Coach Peters was on the ground, a single bullet hole in the front of his head. He was dead.
My favorite moment of the day: Slaughtering a character I have hated since I first created him. I think I’ve mentioned to fans (and I know I have an A/N about it) that I couldn’t wait to get that character out of my fan fic, and today was my chance. I don’t like that it was so violent because I might have to raise the rating back, but it was so worth it.
Favorite beverage: sweet tea. I brewed a gallon with 11 bags and just over 2 cups of sugar. I think I’m good…until I finish the gallon, at least.
I also had the NaNo talk with my boyfriend. He remembers me talking about NaNo last year, a year I wanted to do it but didn’t have any inspiration. He played with me about that, but I think he understands. I wrote a few one-shots while he played Skyrim. I’ll type those up and add them to the count if I reach my 50,000 words. I will post them on my fanfiction.net account once I get them typed out, so I guess they will go towards my traffic. One is rated M, the others are K and K+ respectively; one is a crossover and the other two aren’t.
That’s all for today. I really wish I had the internet each day since my chart is going to look crazy, but whatever. At least I’m doing NaNo. At least I’m doing NaNo….
