Day one of National Novel Writing Month is officially a success! You’re encouraged to write some 1,600 words a day to keep on schedule. Today I wrote, 1,718 words. At this pace, I will finish right on time, though I’m hoping to finish a couple of days early like I did last year.
This year I’m embarking on a whole new genre — futuristic sci-fi. With a controversial plot that I’ll keep to myself for the time being. I’m in the character and plot development stage so it’s not hard to get to the required word count at this stage. It’s the 35,000 word stage I dread! Last year it was a challenge at that point because the characters had been well developed and the plot well set.
This year, since the plot is pretty much entirely new and the characters are new, I’m not sure what’s going to happen in my new world.
With that said, Day 1 is a shining success. On to Day 2!
Onward and upward,
