NaNoWriMo: Day One

So, I had intended to come out, guns blazing and really build up a head of steam right from the outset. Get while the gettings good. And other more vernacular cliches. Turns out Dr. Fate had other ideas on “NaNo: Day One” as at 10:30am, just as I was getting into my writing groove, I received a call and a part time job offer and told to come in at 1pm. So yeah for gainful employment!

Before and slightly after the call I was able to spit out 918 words, a bit shy of the infamous 1667 per day that will take to ‘win’ NaNo. But today is another day. Saddle up the horses, circle the wagons, light the fires and kick the tires, etc.

NaNo wordcount: 918

Listening to: Pig Destroyer Phantom Limb (for the love of God this isn’t for everyone. If you dislike hardcore and/or metal, just move right along).

Reading: A Barn in New England by Joseph Monninger
