Day Two

So I've written over 5,000 words for my NaNoWriMo attempt. Over 10% written and it's only Day Two. Don't worry, there's no way I'll keep up this pace. Anyway. I'm not at all happy with what I've written so far, but instead of expecting myself to write something perfect straight out of the gate, I'm going to keep what I've written and just keep going. No rewrites until December. I keep forgetting that other writers have a process of revision, and that great novels aren't birthed without corrections, edits and even complete rewrites. The grammar needs to be tightened up, I need to work on my characters and iron out the plot, but you know what? To hell with it. I'm just going to run with it and see where it goes...that's what this is all about, surely?

5K, my goodness! It takes me ages to get to that wc. I guess that's why I'm not participating. Keep it up!

That's essentially 5,000 words of nonsense!
