“I get a fine warm feeling when I’m doing well, but that pleasure is pretty much negated by the pain of getting started each day. Let’s face it, writing is hell.”

6 Nov

So I got my NaNoWriMo off to a thudding start last night with 3000 words down. Then it hit me.

Holy shitballs, I need to write this EVERY.SINGLE.DAY. to make it.

Eep.

I like my character. She’s coming naturally to me, and her life is appearing out of the air, wrapping itself around me. The trouble is, I know I’ll want to go in many different directions with her, and I can’t. So part of tonight’s time will be spent choosing her path, and her odds.

I think I love her already though. She’s decided to remain nameless for now.

I’ve decided no looking back-I’ll just write and write and write until my fingers bleed. Then likely ignore it in December and come back to it in January to edit it out. Not that I expect to do much with it. I just want to actually hit the word count, and finish what I want to say. Whatever that is.

I’m so terrible at ends. I have one slithering around in my head though.

Those of you foolish enough to do this as well, how fares it?

    I think I have just over 2500 words. I am positive I will not finish in November (especially since we will be at Disney World the last week, and I will not be writing there, at all!), but am glad I started and will be done when I am done!!!

    Good Luck!!!
