How I'm spending my November

Well, here's the participant badge, that I always forget to post...  My word count is still a little behind (read that well behind, since we're almost halfway through the month) but I'm further ahead than I've ever been in Novembers past.

So maybe I've got a shot.  Right now, I need to write about 2,400 words/day.  Maybe.  We'll see.

My thoughts aren't particularly coherent, but they are there.  And nobody says it has to be a readable novel when I'm done.  That's what editing is for.

It's November - you know what that means

It's NaNoWriMo again.

And due to unforeseen events in my RL I was unable (read: unwilling, uninspired) to start until today.  And I started slow.   But in the last hour or so, I've made up some words and am actually on a decent pace.

I have a few ideas floating around in my head, and I'm hoping that something coherent comes out of them.  I'm trying my best not to censor stuff, because that seems to be my biggest problem.  I write and then erase bits, and that affects my word count.  And also my writing flow.  So maybe, if I can be a little more stream of consciousness this year, I can actually finish the month with a win in the NoMo column this year.

And clearly, I'm not having any problems with words today, because I'm rambling on here as well.

We'll see if by the end of the month I end up with anything useful in my Word file.

Here's hoping *crossed fingers*
