NaNoWriMo Day 1

Day 1 writing badgeThe Words: 6025 words, all on my Neo. I started at midnight last night and wrote 3440 in about an hour and 40 minutes before going to bed. All but 5 minutes of this was done alongside the Twitter feed of @NaNoWordSprints. (If you don’t know what that is, be sure to check it out. It can save the month for you!)

The rest were done tonight in word sprints with others from my region on a Discord server.

The Story: I am basically going to be writing 2 storylines this year, and I’ve never been good at knowing where those storylines will merge while I’m writing. I’m better off writing them as individual storylines and merging them later. But I think it will help me a lot this month if I don’t just write all of one, and then the other. So for now, I’m planning to go back and forth between them every other day, and see how that goes. If I’m really feeling one and want to write it for a few days in a row, of course I will.

Mostly a lot of politics happened in today’s writing. Five characters basically discussed the recent state of their neighboring nations, over the course of several meetings, which will likely be broken up by the other storyline in the end.

Total word count: 6025
