NaNoWriMo : Day 2

Hello fellow wrimos and readers!

It is day two of NaNo and I have a nifty new word count and a pretty ticked off FMC to deal with. (Don't worry, I think I've got it mostly under control. We'll see how that goes tomorrow afternoon!). I have not been able to get on the nano site for today, so if you're waiting for my buddy requests/nanomail, please understand that I am not ignoring you. :P

I'll gladly drag you into my nano insanity the moment I am fully 'online' again. Thank you all for the wonderful encouragement. At the moment, I do not have an excerpt to post, but when I do, you'll be the first ones to know!

As much as I hate to take away from the happy fluffy post, I'd like to address a particular note received last night, yes, if you are following my blog and twitter, there is a slight discrepancy in the word counts.

The answer? Go with the higher number.

In the moment between the twitter/fb page update and my blog post, I had another 'brilliant' line pop into my head and I typed it up before moving on to the next post. I will always do that in future, so that I don't lose the idea or the lines and because it would've happened on the same day. However, to prevent any further worries in that particular area, I will try to post both at the same time and after I've closed my writing program.

Sounds good?

Wonderful.

Today's word count is, *drumroll* a nifty, 12,311.

Whew! I didn't think I'd hit the 10k today, but once I was over the argument with my FMC, things turned out quite nicely. See you tomorrow!

G'night!

12,311??? You rock! Keep up the good work!!! (Also, I am jealous.)

I'm having issues with the NaNo site, too. I guess crashing on Nov 1 and 2 is inevitable, huh?

THUD. Over 10k in one day? You NEVER cease to amaze me, girlie!

@Kristina--LOL, I follow the "Butt on Chair/Hands on Keyboard" rule. :P Of course, having an argument with your MC helps a lot too.

@BookOwl--Yay for 10k! Heehee, thanks! Doesn't the first 10k feel great? I'm waiting to reach a nice, epic point before I post an excerpt. XD

@Erin--Thanks! Yep, the site is usually pointless during the first week, at least with the lousy internet I have too.

@JJ--I was on a roll. Couldn't help it. Absolutely couldn't help it. :P
