Day 1 of NaNoWriMo is over with. I got close to 1,600 words typed and a good start into my story. I feel good that I was able to sit down and do that much. But I still need to work on not letting life get in the way at times. It ranged from the trivial (texts from a friend), to personal interests (my Virginia Tech Hokies losing again last night), and professional items (layoffs and restructuring at my job, not affected but feel bad for those who were). So I finally got time to do what I needed to do.
But I’ve got 29 more days to go. And I’m pretty sure more distractions are coming (I already know I’ll need to say no to a few things this weekend). But I will keep pressing because I told myself I wanted to do this and I feel good about the story that I want to tell. So we shall press on.
Hopefully you guys won’t run into too many distractions and can put them aside when you need to.
