NaNoWriMo - Update

A little bit behind, but not so much I can't catch up over the holiday long weekend.

Day 16:  20,626 words.  (I should be at around 26,666 by now.)

I wrote 4,013 words yesterday. Wow! Doubt I can do that again today.  I really do have to get some work done at some point.

I made the mistake of actually THINKING about the book today.  Never a good idea on a first draft.  I must remind myself that I am just the writer.  I have no idea what the book is about yet, or where it's going, or what it's trying to tell me.

My job right now is to build a world and people it with interesting characters, and they will tell the story when they're darned good and ready, and not before.

Breathe... in... and out....

P.S. Have you heard? Barack Obama is the President of the United States for the next four years.  Yay!
