NaNoWriMo Day 2: I am a writing machine, people!

So far, so good! I am keeping up with the word count, having a blast, and enjoying my bad writing! The pressure is off because it is just for fun and to distract me from the stress of the doctoral work.

I must confess that I approached NaNoWriMo as unprofessionally as one could. I didn't start with an idea or an outline or anything. In fact, I sat in Barnes and Noble yesterday trying to come up with an idea. I just wanted it to be crazy and fun. So, here I am, writing my story as it spontaneously occurs to me (not my usual style) and it is actually pretty hilarious! I worked on it in pieces yesterday and finished up over word count after a healthy glass of wine. Today, it is actually going really fast. I have only been working for about 45 minutes and I am almost to my word limit for the day (they say in order to complete the 50,000 words by the end of the month one should write approximately 1667 words per day). So far, I have written 1045 today (approximately 2,100 yesterday). Yea! Good times and totally irrational plot twists. I love it.
