Yesterday, then, was the start of my NaNoWriMo journey for 2020.
I have around 17 days in which to write 50,000 words, and that gives me a daily target of just under 3,000 words – or a smidge under 2,972. If I can write at least those 3,000 words every working day, that will give me 51,000 words.
For ages and ages I just stared at the top of my screen. I knew what I was supposed to be writing and I knew how long it should be. But I couldn’t get going.
BUT … I refused to get up and walk away until I’d at least started, so I forced myself to write something … and managed to write 3,003 words in the end.
That’ll do for Day 1.
However, I have hit a snag in my planning in that the body isn’t discovered quick enough. So I need to revisit my plan and do some new calculations.
