NaNoWriMo Day #1
We had a friend staying over so I started out late this morning, but once I got the story rolling it seemed to go pretty smooth. I came up with a semi-decent first line: The man who had just saved my life wanted to kill me.
and then went from there.
I took my time with this one because it's an experiment in voice, genre and style for me. I was tempted to go for an even three thousand words, but I have three thousand more to write for other books today so I made myself stop. I went ahead, printed out a hard copy and did the editing right after my second writing session because I had a couple of corrections in my head that I wanted to get down before I lost them.
I'm fairly satisfied with what I got for the first draft, although I have to watch the backstory with this one; it's fairly extensive and already wants to eat my book. I'm also not 100% committed to the narrative I'm using to open Chapter One; I think coming off the last StarDoc
has me with some residual Cherijo in my head because it reminds me of her a little. I also decided to start keeping a glossary for the coined words.Today's Stats:
