Writing, Family and More

Welcome to NaNoWriMo 2013

Hey look – it is November 1st!

I managed to go to sleep at 11:30pm last night, so no writing past midnight for me as I have done in 2 out of 3 years previous. I don’t really regret it because I managed to sleep, which is a feat unto itself these days.

I haven’t really burned my mind into the idea I’m working from this year and I’m waiting right now for the kids to fall asleep so I can properly focus on it. Hopefully it goes well because I don’t want to fail and Camp Nanowrimo’s false start really has me slightly concerned.

The first writing session for each NaNo so far has been pretty productive. In my first year, I pushed out 1700 words in 45 minutes or so (and that at just past midnight) and finished day one with over 3000. In year two I did 450 in two early morning sessions (5:45 and 6:45) and another 1100 during the night. In year three I didn’t stay up to midnight, but still had a 1750-word, 46-minute session to kick things off and was well underway pretty quickly after that.

Here it is – 9pm on November 1st and I haven’t written word one.

I’m not worried yet, just a bit concerned. Over the next thirty days, we’ll see how it goes.

Happy novel writing month all!
