One NaNo Week Down
I'm back from my FABULOUS Austin RWA writing retreat and what an AWESOME time I had! I laughed, wrote and ate. Then I did it again. Then I slept. Then I got up and laughed, wrote and ate a bit more. I knocked out almost 5400 words and I've got some GREAT ideas for future NaNo days. I started to get into the heroine's background a bit and, wow, that villain is a sick, sick man. I actually got disturbed and had to stop writing for a bit. (That's where the laughing had to come in.) I'm actually thinking I might be able to finish 50,000 words in a month. Granted, it's only the first week, but if you had told me last month that I'd have 15,000 words of a new story written in 8 days, I wouldn't have believed you either. I'd love to continue writing now, but I have school work to do (Yuck) and I think I might be getting a wee bit sick (Yuck). So I'm going to bed early after a cup of tea and some "down time" with my remote and my grade book.
