Day One Redux
I've got four essays finished for my collection, and they've been getting longer (the third was about 1,200 words, the fourth close to a thousand). The day's only half done and I've got the event in Palo Alto ahead. I enjoy writing this much- it's like all the things I've thought about blogging for the past year is just getting cataloged.
Bit peeved, as I think my style and grammatical structure leaves something to be desire- it's a bit dull. But in time that will likely remedy itself.
I'd intended to write about a paragraph at midnight and go to sleep... then ended up writing over 1K :) Then I was up early this morning and wrote a lot more before work.
Sadly the rest of day 1 will be dedicated to writing application essays. Good luck everyone!
I got my first chapter done, which equates to 1,715 words in approximately 7 pages (as formatted by Storyist).
I actually was planning for my novel to have a humorous tone to it and, at least so far, it hasn't really developed. But that's okay. Whatever happens organically is where it will go.
I'm excited to get some more writing in at the Palo Alto meetup later.
Alrighty, I'm at 4,281 for my first day! On track to beat last year's record of finishing on November 14th; we shall see...
I was running the official word sprint twitter feed (@NaNoWordSprints) tonight and it was a BLAST, and I got a lot of work done. I definitely recommend it for those of you who tweet.
