NaNoWriMo #6 Day One

Relax, there won't be daily updates here. You'll have to follow on Twitter or Facebook for those and even then they'll only be really word counts.

No, here you'll get some insight into my process and how the writing's going. This year's my sixth NaNo and I've won all five previous years. This year I'm writing the sequel to the novel from two years ago now.

So Friday was the first day of NaNoWriMo and what was different this year from the previous five is that I did not start writing at the crack of dawn. My work schedule prevented it and there were things that had to be done immediately when I got home so I didn't get to start writing until after dinner.

Which ended up being fine. I hit my daily goal of 2000 words plus a little more and I'm trying out a new style in the novel itself. Nothing major, just using Scrivener to separate each scene in each chapter.

I've got the big beats ready to go, I know the characters, I have great villains and everything that goes on has room for improv. There's an ending in place and even if it's not the ending that comes out I'm ready to go.

I'm excited to get rolling on The Silent Well. Signing off to get some writing done.
