What a rough first day. So like usual I hate when Nano starts because it's on Halloween. Granted we never really participate for Halloween because of the location of our house, which happens to site on three hills. I wouldn't walk up three hills to go to my house for candy, I don't think anyone would. Neither does the fact that if you do walk up the three hills to my house that you will be handsomely rewarded. Pfft. I do this everytime I pretend to jog. I don't get rewarded... Anyways. We usually bathe my house in shadows avoiding everything which is unfortunate for myself because I live on the side facing the street.
I usually plan to write a few hundred words at 12:01am so in preparance I usually go to sleep early or try to so that my sleep schedule doesn't get too screwed up this year. Like I planned I only made it to 300. That's fine because it set me up for the rest of the writing day. I somehow managed to get to goal > 1667 per day. So as for my Day 1 I'm doing well, and I haven't even introduced my plotline yet. That is a bit exciting and frightening at the same time. I have alot o my plate for this story because it is a SciFi which I have never done. But hey why not. I'll be posting my NaNo daily entries again this year. I'm also utilizing a new online writing document savey thingy called yarny.me seems this is an actual sponsor of nano as well. All this and trying to balance my work and social life.
A lot of upcoming events in my way this year for nano. I'll do a list for ya:
- Nephew's 6th Birthday
- Work social events (mostly every wednesday >.<
- Online Classes (two)
- my first 1/2 Marathon this sunday (i'm going to die )
- Gym (i kinda stopped going this week, I might try again tomorrow depending)
- Carpooling (i have to bring my coworker to work as her mom, my boss, is on leave at this time)
I'm sure I have other things, I just don't know about them yet. Sigh... well... let's see what happens eh?
- Watching: the clock
