End of day 1, with a nice cushion

It's the end of day 1, November 1. I did write a little bit after midnight last night, but it only amounted to about 380 words. I made quick work of my 2,000-word goal this evening. Breached that mark by a little actually. This gives me a nice cushion for tomorrow. If I can break the usual 1,667 words tomorrow too, that gives me a cushion for Saturday.

I discovered that Dali isn't nearly as cynical as I thought she was--which is good because I don't want to get tired of her. ;o) Anyway, she's learned about the circus from the mailman, Mr. Benson, and she's decided to take the trannin (whatever that is!) to the Metro (wherever that is!). But that is an adventure for tomorrow because midnight approaches.

  1. This sounds like an awesome plot, Mangy! And isn't it so cool when our characters surprise us? My Julie ended up being more talkative than I thought . . . which was a bit of a shocker. But I love her even more for it!

    NaNo is a total blast. I should have started doing it a long time ago . . .

  2. I can't imagine how a Julie couldn't be gregarious--Heaven knows mine is. :oP So glad that you're having fun with NaNo! It was absolutely MADE for writers like us.
