If you don't have a dream, how are you going to make a dream come true?
|Near panic this morning when the site wouldn't work!
Embarrassing moment of yesterday:
After my shower, I was getting dressed. I reached into a drawer for a pair of socks, but grabbed underwear instead. I proceeded to try to put them on my foot, taking a few full seconds before I realized they weren't a sock...
Yep, NaNo'll do that to ya.
Anyway, I had another solid writing day yesterday. I finished the first 25% of the novel! Hooray!
Day 5 Report:
Word Count: 12,508 (wrote 3267)
Finished Part 1 of the story
Watched about 5 episodes of The X-Files Season 4
Played tons of games
Participated in one ten-minute Word War, wrote 520 words!
Averaging about 70 words for the one-minute www.oneword.com writings.
Today I'm going to start a totally different area of my book. For the first quarter, I've had my characters stuck inside a building. It's been bare and stark with no colors or decoration. Very clinical with a hospital feel. Today I'll be starting Part 2 which takes place in the chaotic, overwhelming world of the City which surrounds the building my characters have been stuck inside of.
New characters and new settings! Exciting!
(All the characters and settings will tie together later, I promise! This isn't cheating!)
My mind doesn't really want to get going today, which is part of the reason I'm starting the new area in my book. I want to get one more solid day of writing. I got my schedule for next week and the only days I have off are days when I just have meetings at work instead of 8+ hour shifts... But if I get a good writing day in today, I'll still be on track by the end of next week. Wish me luck!
And good luck to all of you NaNo-ers! Isn't this fun?
