NaNoWriMo–Day 1

on 11/01/2012

Okay, here it is!  The first day of NaNoWriMo, and my first year to try to write a 50,000 page book in one month.  I have warned my friends (not that they’ll remember) and my family (my parents will remember) that November is off limits because I’m going to be writing.  I’ve finished most of my character profiles, my synopsis and a rough outline, jotted down some good notes as far as the duties of a game warden (one of my characters is one of these) and hunting seasons. And if I get stuck on something I’ll just call my dad who used to be friends with a game warden and has lots of stories.  I’ve even worked ahead on my Bible Study.

Goals for today:

  • post synopsis on NaNoWriMo site
  • write roughly 2,000 words

Things to expect in the future:

  • strange questions posed on Facebook and Twitter about hunting, cotton farming, cattle raising and word options
  • strange phone calls to family and technical support
  • practical famine, followed by binging on junk food and gaining weight
  • weekends that don’t see me out of my pajamas

Thanksgiving is going to be tough. I may have to take some days off at the end of the month to finish.  However, right now, I’m just going to concentrate on starting.

Wish me luck.  And if you are participating in NaNoWriMo, best of luck to you.
