NaNoWriMo Day 1: Post Mortem [UPDATED]

I don’t think I’ll be blogging every ray of NaNoWriMo because anytime spent writing blog posts could be better spent adding to my word count.

With the first day of NaNoWriMo over I’m currently sitting at 1,130 odd words, which is 2006 or so lower than I’d hoped to have written, I’ve choreographed a fight scene which I know I will end up rewriting, I’ve introduced three characters who may or may not recur and I’ve introduced a character who isn’t the protagonist.

I didn’t get as far as meeting my protagonist, which is okay as technically I’m writing the prologue at the moment and the protagonist is just a child.

I am worried that I’m not going to be able to take the story anywhere though, I was suffering from some serious writers block last night.

Oh well I can but try.

On another note the NaNoWriMo website was down last night so I couldn’t submit my word count. I’m going to try and keep track of it myself in a spreadsheet, so I can do my own funky graphs in case the website never comes back up.

[UPDATE] Bugger I just realized that the daily average word count should be 1,667 not 1,333, my current word count is 1,137 so I’m 530 words behind for yesterday. All I have to do is write 2,197 words to be back on track though, I reckon that’s a good couple of hours work. Not Ideal that I’m going to a gig this evening. I think I might have a late night ahead of me.
