Ain’t No Redemption, Journal Entry Two – NaNo, Day One

I just finished my first writing session for NaNoWriMo, and I have to admit that I’m pleasantly surprised by the outcome. Considering that I didn’t fall asleep until around 2 a.m., I’m very happy with what was produced. 1,837 words, and that was after waking up a 6 in the morning and staring at my computer for an hour while forcing enough coffee down my gullet to wake wake a sleeping god. I will admit to a moment or two of panic, when I thought that I wouldn’t get anything down before I had to get ready for work. But, I guess this is why we outline. I knew the plot, knew where I wanted to things to go in this first chapter, and I knew my characters well. The trick was just hammering out a few shitty sentences – that seemed to get things going. After a quick deletion of said shit the rest of the narrative just flowed.

Now, I must prepare for work.

Be excellent to each other!
