NANO Day Three, Stardate eleventybillion

Greetings to fellow Nanoers and writers and friends.

Today is November 3, third day of National Novel Writing Month.

So far, so good.

I’ve hit the minimum 1667 plus a little bit each day.

For me, once I get to 1000 words, it’s not too  hard to push on to the 1667. It’s the stuff up to 1000 that weighs me down.

Fortunately, I like the material I’m working on, so that helps. It’s mostly by the seat of my pants with a good, general idea of where I’m heading with the story and characters.

I need to not burn dinner, so I’ll head for the kitchen in a moment. Sustenance is important. Keep those foods and beverages coming.

I’m drinking Shirley Temple cocktails today (orange juice, diet ginger ale, a splash of Granadine, ice cubes, maraschino cherries). Nothing’s too good for NaNo.

Rock on and write on.

And... they're off!
