I've been writing hot and heavy. And...drum roll...as of Tuesday, my word count reached 10,431!
Now that sounds pretty cool until you look on the NaNo website and see many others who have far surpassed me (that is if you can get on the website--it's pretty overloaded with manic writers).
Turning off my internal editor has been the key to success so far. Reminder to self: NaNo is all about quantity, not quality!
I know I'll slow down as the month wears on because of prior commitments and the holiday, so I really need to produce now.
By the way, it helped tremendously to have a basic outline (which I admit to straying from a bit) and character sketches completed before November 1.
More to come in a few days.
