For the first day of Nanowrimo I was determined to begin with a bang. My entire day was spent writing wherever and whenever I could. I wrote while waiting to go into class. I wrote while sitting in the car. I wrote as I ate. I just let go of any and all excuses and wrote.
I had written more in one day then I ever had before. It made me feel like I was truly capable of finishing my first draft faster then I ever thought possible. I learned so much about my characters and I felt as though I lived with them as I wrote.
I have the beginnings of a story! That is one of the most exciting notions of all.
This month will be full of ups and downs, but at least I know I have a good starting point and a story that I am happy and excited for.
