NaNoWriMo Day One

I made it to the midnight NaNoWriMo big write-in at PDX. And I made it with 15 minutes to spare before the big "go!" - just enough time to grab a decaf soy latte, get plugged in and set up.

And in about 80 minutes I'd reached 1700 words. The daily average is to aim for 1667; that times 30 equals roughly 50k.

So it looks like things are off to a good start in the being on track wise.

The story? Meh. Too early to tell, thank goodness!

The words flowed from brain to keyboard. No. The words flowed through my fingers; I don't know how much my brain was involved in tonight's writing. It's certainly not anything where I guessed my hints would go.

But I have have my first death. It's a little murky now if she - or anyone else - has died. Hopefully in the next day or two we'll find out. For now, I just have to not fall too behind (maybe not fall at all behind) in my word count.

Thank you Vancouver NaNoWriMo MLs for setting up the write-in. It was a fun place and fun group of people.
