NaNoWriMo 2011: So Far, So Good
It took everything I had. But today I exceeded my word count goal of 1667 words (by 11). And I made a batch of brownies. Then I put on a pretty dress and taught ten piano students.
Now I am too tired to say much of anything. As a matter of fact, I think I should go to bed before I get my second wind. Because when that happens, I can stay up all night. And sometimes do.
But I wanted to share that I am totally psyched about this project. As I explained on Between Birthdays yesterday, I have discovered that I am a "plotter," not a "pantser." With the aid of my Goal, Motivation and Conflict charts and the bare bones outline I scribbled late last night (I intend to flesh it out more later), I think I might be doing my best writing to date.
And now I'm off to dreamland. What about you? Are you a plotter are a pantser? Are you participating in NaNoWriMo this year? If so, did you meet your Day 1 goals?
