Two Down

Day 2 of NaNoWriMo has been a success. I wrote 1,785 words today, bringing my two-day total to 3,934 -- 600 words ahead of schedule.

That feels good.

I also went to a write-in this afternoon hosted at Panera by one of the local NaNoWriMo leaders. It was good to get out and meet a couple of my fellow writers. But while there I only got halfway through my word count for the day and had to finish up at home. Being a pretty solitary writer, the words flow much more smoothly when I am home alone with the canine munchkin. Fewer distractions and all that.

The light to moderate snoring by my feet doesn't count as a distraction. It brings a smile to my face every time.

Just glad that the first two days are done. Twenty-eight more to go!

Having a Blast

So far, so good. For the first day of NaNoWriMo, I wrote 2,149 words.

That feels pretty fabulous. I was aiming to get to 2,000, and I had to do just 1,666 to stay on track to write 50,000 words in 30 days.

Needless to say, I'm pumped.

More to come.
