NaNoWriMo Check In #1

So NaNoWriMo is off to a great start!  I tell you what, every year as October 31st moves into November 1st I feel that itch to get my fingers on the keyboard and just WRITE.  And this year is no different.

For those who have asked, I most likely won't share my NaNo novel on my blog.  At least not right now.  I am one of those people who is harder on myself than anyone else so I'll want to edit my novel A LOT once November is actually over.

Yesterday was a HUGE day for me.  I had the day off and I was committed to starting off this year with a bang.  And did I ever.  My goal for the day was 1,667 words.  And by the end of yesterday I was up to 5,024 words.  That's more than triple what I needed.

Hopefully I can keep this up and have the best year of NaNo yet.  If yesterday is any indication it's going to be amazing.
