NaNoWriMo update: week 1

My first week as a NaNoWriMo participant has gone swimmingly. I just logged my 17,558th word to my growing manuscript. I love writing every day and taking time to myself to be creative. It feels fantastic and refreshing. Here is a list of 11 things that I have learned in the past week.

1      Libraries are magical places
2      Coffee is a fuel
3      It's hard to name a horse
4      A buzzing fly is the antithesis to productivity
5      I should expect more of myself (like 2000 words per day)
6      Byron makes a mean pot roast
7      To be a writer, one just has to write
8      I am a writer
10    People (even strangers on twitter) are more supportive that I ever imagined
11    I can actually do this

  1. I like the feeling of community that NaNo creates. It's really supportive. My perception of NaNo when I first heard of it was a bunch of computer nerds who can type a million words a minute. I was wrong. Most people are writers having fun, honing their craft. I'm glad I signed up.

    Keep going! I'm rooting for you. I'm sure it will be rewarding once you finish your first draft!
