I am officially in my second week of NaNoWriMo. There are four weeks in November, so that means I am over 25% done with the endeavor. My word count is a little behind. Still, I’m feeling positive and looking forward to seeing what my first draft contains. There is no time for editing while I’m cranking out 1,667 words a day.
Every morning I wake up three hours before work and make coffee. And write. After work, I turn off my office laptop, open my personal one, and write some more.
The nice thing about writing this way is there is no pressure to write well. My goal is just to flesh out the outline. It’s a totally new experience and I bet a natural part of most “real” authors’ processes.

Excellent! You can do it! Maybe you can share your experience with the group when you’re done?
Don’t forget to back up your work. I knew a woman who lost 25,000 words halfway through the NaNoWriMo and hadn’t backed it up.
Thanks to an awesome person, I use dropbox and don’t worry about not backing up my work. Our first meeting after I’m done won’t be until January but I’d love to talk about it then.
Outstanding. Look at you go. Keep up that drive. Love it.
