Day One

Well, it's day one of our little PriNoWriMo. Not sure how well I will do today because, I have obligations all day that take me from my office. I am going to take my laptop with me, so I can work in the waiting room at the doctor's office.

I have two doctors appointments this afternoon. Nothing serious, just my yearly check-up. One with my Gynecologist and the other is a mammogram. Important, but not serious. I like to get my torture all done in one day. :o)

Every Tuesday I go to my church and quilt with some friends of mine. So you see, it will be a challenge to get my word count in today.

For the NaNoWriMo your supposed to do 1,667 words in a day, but that's a 30 day month. I will have to ask my PriNo buddies if since we have an extra day if we have extra time or if we are going to stop on the 30th. Hmm, I'll get back to you on that one.

I've dug out my "No Plot? No Problem!" book by Chris Baty, the founder of NaNoWriMo. It's a great little book that can be a cheerleader at best and distraction at worst. It does have some great information and tips in it to help with the dark days of writer's block and helps you realize that it can be done.

I succeeded in finishing my 50,000 words this past November and I can do it again.
