NaNoWriMo Week 1 Update
I've managed to get some really good writing habits that I can hopefully keep up. I'm writing about twice a day - once in the morning, and once at night. And because I'm using Scrivener, I'm finding it really easy to write by scenes. You see, the problem with me is that I don't have a set plot, and my characters sometimes tell me to write certain scenes first. So it's only as I write that the bigger picture becomes visible.
And it's looking quite cool. My muse has been very annoying (she works mainly when I want to sleep, which leads to frantic phone tapping), but she's working all right. I never imagined I could write as much as I have already have, and the story is totally different from what I thought it would be.
As for word-count... well, I'm not too worried about it. I didn't actually check until Day 4, and I haven't checked for about 2 days. But the last I checked, I'm doing ok. And well, winning would be nice, but for me, the point is to get into the habit of writing everyday.
Speaking of writing everyday, my fellow nano-skype buddies all gave up on day one (yes, I mean you and you know who I'm talking to). I can't blame them though, this isn't the most ideal period, for example, it's exam season in many different places. And school > NaNoWriMo (sadly).
How have you been doing? Is your story as you expected, or is it a lot different?
