For those that don’t know, NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) started a little over 24 hours ago. NaNoWriMo is the book geek national holiday. All book geeks want one day to be author geeks, and I am no exception. So every year I log back in to the NaNoWriMo site, set up my novel, give it a title and a name, and then start typing. Most years I get nowhere. 1500 maybe 3000 words. But I try. I am trying again this year. The result so far is pasted below.
The point of NaNoWriMo is writing, not editing, and that is my biggest problem. I am always going back and editing while I write. That is why I get frustrated. I have determined this year not to edit. So I am using a minimalist text editor called WriteMonkey. No spell check, no squiggly underlines, no nothing except a blank screen and me. Maybe that will help.
Anyway, so here is what I have so far. Oh By the way, You can find my NaNoWriMo profile here, it has all the stats for what I am working on this year.
