Can you believe it's already November? All the writers competing in NaNoWriMo were all getting ready to pounce on their novel as soon as the clock struck twelve. Me, I got up very early to get a good head start (4:30 am... yes, that hour does exist), but it all failed since I spent all morning preparing for school.
Don't be disheartened. At the end of the day I still made over 2000 words (that's a good effort for the first day). I probably could have gotten more words done if I didn't have to constantly check facts (well, that serves me right for choosing to right a novel that takes place in Japan). Oh well, I do love a challenge and I'll love introducing readers to the fantastic paranormal creatures that exists within another culture (I've already got plans for a Shinigami, Zashiki Warashi and a Kitsune).
Good luck to all writers participating in NaNoWriMo.
If you are participating how are you going? Did you get off to a good start?
