Shabam! I wrote 2,141 words today! Suck it NaNo!
Okay, so it is just the first day, but for a girl that has never written a novel before, I take pride in pretty much any amount of words on a page towards that end. And hey, they even kind of sound like a novel already!
So yeah, first day down. Though I will say, writing is actually pretty hard guys. It was difficult to force myself to just settle down and write. I think the hardest part was when I was attempting to write dialogue scenes. The line breaks kept jarring me out of it. And I would sit there staring thinking, “Okay, now what does he say back to her?” Then I was worried about how much I should describe, because I really, really don’t want to fall into the tired fantasy trope of being overly descriptive. That is allll over the fantasy genre. Though I might have gone a little too far in the opposite direction. So I think tomorrow I will go back in and add a little description so everyone gets the feel of this one creepy goblin that is part of the inciting incident of my story.
Goal for tomorrow: Write another 2,000 words!
