NaNoWriMo Day 1 Update

Hello all!

So last night after I had stuffed myself with candy, (We bought enough for more trick-or-treaters than we had the year before and we actually had only about half the amount.) I patiently waited until midnight and then started furiously typing the completely unplanned prologue of my novel. I’d written some back story and decided it was too good to leave out, especially since it started the book off with a big action scene.

I wrote the first chapter today as well, after I’d gotten some sleep, where we meet my main character, Meredith, and follow her through the portal into a fantasy universe. She just got there at the end of the chapter, so tomorrow is where the real world building will start. That’s pretty daunting, but really I’m excited to start writing one of my other major characters, Karim. Mer should be encountering him for the first time pretty soon!

I clocked 2,790 words today, so I’m about a half day ahead of schedule, which is good because I’m working a long shift tomorrow and I’m not sure how much writing I’ll get done.

How are the rest of you doing? Anyone doing the blogging version? How’s that going?
