Well, my wordcount is obviously not where I'd like it to be. As of midnight for Day 2, it was 2,141/50,000 words. A tad off pace, but not that far, only about 1200 words. The next two days are my days off. I'm working some OT, but still should be able to make progress (hopefully get ahead even,) and be at a more reasonable spot in #NaNoWriMo.
Really not much else to say at this point, other than I need to glue my ass in the chair and write. The important thing is to chain up my inner editor, lock them in a steel box, and drop them in the Marianas Trench for the month of November. It's all about getting the words out. As Hemingway said, "The first draft of anything is shit." Once you embrace that, you can just pound away on that keyboard and worry about editing later. That was the hardest concept for me to grasp when I first started doing NaNo years ago. I was in the habit of polishing as I went, so the idea of just writing and worrying about it later was anathema to me. So, off I go to throw caution to the wind and write with abandon. Good writing to my fellow NaNo participants!
