Nanowrimo Day 1 and 2

If you don’t know, National Novel Writing Month kicked off today, starting the 30 day stretch to hit 50,000 words for a novel. The days are broken into smaller goals of 1,667 words.

I want to get back to writing. I want to get my projects finished. Even if they’re not perfect, I want to be proud of what I did. So I’m participating in NaNoWriMo with the hopes that focusing away from the projects I’ve been stuck on forever and getting used to writing on a schedule will help me move past this rut I’m in.

So my novel for this month is called House Party, Descensio. It’s a suspense/fantasy/comedy. Or so I’m planning. But as it’s for fun, I can do whatever I want.

So I’ve spent about the same amount of time making the ridiculous cover as I did writing today, but hey, any progress is progress.

I also started a new job today. And the election is tomorrow, for us Americans. I must say, I CANNOT wait until this election is over and done with so I can stop seeing so many political ads. The worst is when I’m running at the gym and each TV has a different political attack ad on. Like, can someone who knows about the history of politics tell me if there was ever a time when presidents used their own merits as campaign points, not just the shortcomings of the opponents?

But I digress. Writing is going okay, but it’s only day two. Hopefully I can keep a steady habit for the next 28!
