In the kissorlando NaNoWriMo writers' group last night, I wrote the first 700 words of chapter two. I came home and called my godfather about possible twists, turns, and plots for chapter two, covering the creation of humans and the beginning of civilization. We spoke about material for chapter three.
This morning, I was up at 5:00 AM (Kelvin says I was up earlier), walked Mio, made coffee, ate breakfast (I didn't forget it this time), and was writing by 6:00 AM. At 8:00 AM I stopped. I wrote 3,392 words this morning. That's a lot, and I'm only 1/3 of the way through the material I wanted to cover. Either I will do a lot of editing later (more than likely), or I'll be adding an additional chapter (possibly), or both.
My total word count so far is 11,166. The challenge is to write 50,00 words in the month of November. I have 38,834 words to go, and 29 days left to do it in.
I think I can make it.
