Off to a Darn Good Start...

>> Wednesday, November 5, 2008

Nanowrimo has been going really well for me so far. *knocks on wood* This is going much easier than last year. The story is just flowing from me, for the most part. I don't know if it's because I'm just more experienced at Nano, or if I'm not letting myself get as hung up with fixing mistakes and just moving on instead, but something seems to be working.

As of right now, I have 11, 864 words. I am just over a day ahead of schedule. I hope to write even more soon, to give myself a large cushion to fall upon, in case something happens and Eileen doesn't let me do much writing for a day or so. But so far it has been working pretty well. I let her play in the room with me while I type, and it works much better than I thought it would.

The election really got me down, but I'm trying to just move on from that. I may not have wanted Obama for president, but I really hope he does as good a job as people think he will. I hope that at least after all the hype, he can do some good for the economy--at the minimum. But I won't hold my breath.

For now, I'm pushing on with Nanowrimo and pouring even more of myself into my writing. Writing has gotten me through many things, and it will get me through this as well.

I'm getting ready for four years of criticizing the president and his decisions. The democrats had eight years. I guess it's my turn. (Only I'll still stand behind my country even if I don't like him. Unlike the left.)
Anyway. Yay for the NaNo progress!

Well done on your good start to NaNo. I've never really committed to it: it's too intense and relentless for me. Best of luck with it.
