Taking a nap before hitting the keyboard again.

I'm doing cycle writing and noticed my narrative focus is all over the place between my two main characters.
Sigh
Lots of editing come December....

For this NaNoWriMo I'm going with a full length piece that I hope will be picked up by a particular publisher. I'm exploring a couple different kinks for me topically.

Ending day one a little shy of my own goal but still happy with the progress. Looking ahead I would love to go to bed Sunday night with 25,000 words under my belt.

Word Count: 4,220

My goal for this NaNo is to write. Whatever my word count is at the end will be more than I've managed in the past 6-8 months. And since I can't sleep, I'm going to see if I can add to what I have so far.

Me too. My target for November is one 8k word short story to the publisher and one 50k-60k word novella which is now outlined. Got to pin the short story plot down tho. My muse is down in Florida on vacation or something on that one. I shall do a Balzac on that one and drink coffee. And start writing on the basis that if the fingers start moving the story will come to them. "Blood Sacrifice" here I come.....

As expected, today was a writing washout. I managed a couple of hundred words in between other activities.
