NaNoWriMo Update One

Well hi there!

I meant to post yesterday but I had to open at work and then had a two and a half hour lunch with Lindsay. Such fun!

I'm not going to go into what's been going on. I've been writing like CRAZY for NaNoWriMo and my brain is much. NaNo has been AMAZING this year. Last year was my first year and it was a huge struggle. I started hating my story about halfway through and it was a challenge every.single.day to get my word count up. This year, though, I feel good. Some days are a struggle but other days the words just flow. It feels so good.

NaNo is all about hardcore just WRITING. You don't stop to worry about grammar or spelling (although the spelling thing still gets me - thank God for spell check). You just GO. And then you worry about the editing later. I know some of my sentences, paragraphs, HELL some of my chapters probably make little to no sense. But I'm WRITING. And it feels darn amazing.

I'm currently at over 18,000 words. AMAZING. Right now I'm supposed to be at just over 15,000. So I'm ahead of the game and I'm trying to stay there. My goal is to get done ahead of the deadline. Or rather hit the 50,000 word goal. I may just keep going though.

Anyway. I'm zonked. Time for bed. More soon!
