Week One NaNo Update

A whole week of NaNo-ing has already almost passed us by!

With over 13k words written so far, I’m a little ahead of the game and hoping to give myself a nice little cushion before the dreaded symptoms of Week 2 set in. Not to mention my brother is visiting for the weekend and I’d like to be able to spend some time with him without worrying about my word count suffering since I only see him about once a year and each time it’s just for a few days.

I also attended my first-ever write-in last night despite this being my 7th year participating in NaNoWriMo! It was an amazing experience and I wish I had been able to go to them in past years, but alas they were all too far away for me to attend. I’m planning on attending at least three more before the month-long noveling event is over, maybe six depending on my schedule and ability to get to another one that isn’t too far from my house.

Below is a sampling of my Week One progress and stats.

Last Line: Sid moved away from the door, shaking his head. This was the woman his parents had keeping an eye on him? Someone should be keeping an eye on her.
