Very First Write-In (Word Count = 27,220)

Even though I could only stay about an hour, I went to my very first NanoWrimo Write-In. I did about 1K in just under an hour and did another 1K in the past hour or so. I was not much of a conversationalist because I was trying very hard to get 1K words...but it was so much fun to see MPB (aka NanoWrimo Superhero) and the other folks there. Hopefully I can go again on Saturday. Saturday is an important I am hoping that some writing time will help to make it through without any tears.

I am getting kind of sleepy so I am probably going to turn in soon. For the first time during NanoWrimo 08 I wrote out of order. A scene idea hit me as I was driving to Panera for something that is meant to happen much later. I decided to go with it since it was fresh in my mind and that gave me something to dive right into as soon as I bought some coffee.

Happy NanoWrimo!!! Even though I had a busy day at work and a meeting rescheduling kept me from leaving as early as I had planned...I still figured out a way to get in some words. was a good NanoWrimo Day!!

PS - I am really looking forward to having several hours of writing time tomorrow with my writing friends!! Last time I wrote with them I was very worried about planning and writing and filled with self doubt about NanoWrimo 2008. And now...I am in the thick of it!!

And you can totally get to 30k by the end of today! I bet you'll end up with loads more than that.
