Yesterday was the kick-off for National Novel Writing Month –NaNoWriMo. I am excited to participate this year. The rallying of writers everywhere in support of each other is a heady, motivating thing.
Despite my enthusiasm, I only managed a measly 819 words yesterday. Probably because I went adventuring instead of writing! Derek took me to do the ridge approach of Mount Superior outside of Salt Lake City.
|Trying not to get blown off the mountain.|
After a few hours of this, we decided to turn back. The descent went a lot faster than the approach as Derek found an easier route to get back down. I did end up getting too friendly with a cactus, which caused us a minor delay while Derek helped me remove all the little spines from my pant leg – ouch!
Today has been a lot more productive for writing. This morning I got in 2,243 words bringing my total up to 3,062. I still plan on getting a few more hours of writing in, but I feel a little less frantic about it now that I have some momentum behind me.
Anyone else out there working on NaNoWriMo this year? How are you doing? My profile name is Suzie Marie if you want to be Buddies :)
