Nanowrimo got off to a great start last Thursday... then, it fizzled out. Weekends are usually the time when Nanowrimo participants catch up on all the words they couldn't get down during the week. As a writer, weekends are my Achilles heel. I spent Saturday Christmas shopping. One day and done. So that should never be a distraction for me again. However, I'm also having to ramp up the freelance projects. I got a bum car and who knows how much that will cost to fix.
But back to the story. It seems to be going well so far, even though I had absolutely no direction other than the opening scene. I'm trying not to plan this one ahead of time in any way and it seems to be working better as a strategy. Usually with an outline I try to skip ahead the boring parts to get to the good parts. Without an outline, I have to just see where the next sentence takes me.
Although I'm currently 2 days behind (or more... I'm not quite sure), I will be catching up today. After coffee. And breakfast. And work. And... nah, I'm just kidding. I'm getting on it right now.
