Day one is over!! What a relief. I'm proclaiming this a two glass day because I hit 1890 words. That gives me a 223 word cushion so far. In the past, when I have actually been prepared for NaNo, the first day has always been the best day of the month. When I spend the weeks before November 1st plotting and planning my story and getting to know my characters, that first day is a breeze. Sadly, I've now discovered that when I spend the weeks before NaNo on vacation, followed by a screaming yellow zonker of a sinus headache, that first day becomes a whole lot harder. I'm glad I got it done but I'm really worried about what tomorrow will bring. I'm afraid I've written everything I know already! Stay tuned!
