OMG its November 1st and NaNoWriMo has officially started... which means I am already behind! I had such good intentions, I really did. I was going to start writing at midnight in order to kick-off NaNo on a productive note and, well, Halloween got in the way.
I have two young kids. Terror #1 is 3 years old and Terror #2 is 7 months. So Terror #1 was completely bonkers most of the night on a sugar high (as well as an excitement high) from a Halloween party at school and trick-or-treating with one of her little friends. By the time we got her down to sleep, I was literally about 30 minutes away from falling asleep myself. Which means by the time the clock struck midnight and the excitement of NaNo began, I was asleep. Sigh.
However, today is still November 1st, and still technically the first day of NaNoWriMo, so I will be getting my word count in for the day. (On a side note, writing a novel with word count deadlines, way less sexy than the idea of writing a book!) Of course, I need to fit this in during the kiddos naps and/or after bedtime, but I am determined, I will be getting in my 1,667 words for the day. Which means I better stop writing on this Blog and start writing my, wait for it, NOVEL!
