Thoughts on my first day of writing a novel:
- It was easier than I thought. Which probably does not bode well. I mean, if I did so great today than I’m probably just going to get over-confident and not write tomorrow and then I’ll fall behind and then I’ll never think I can catch up and then I’ll just give up and be a NaNo failure. Again.
- I wrote a whole chapter! And then some!
- Jenny emailed me with a pep talk! Well her pep talk basically only said, “WRITE.” And yes, it was all in capitals. Then she talked about how great “The Hunger Games” was and I could only nod in violent agreement with her.
- I feel sort of disassociated from what I’m writing. It’s weird. I’ll go back to read something over or add a word or something and I’ll get sort of intrigued by the dialogue or whatever and forget that I wrote it. It’s whole pages of writing and I kind of feel as if it just appeared there with no mediation by me. Though my wrist and gimp elbow tells me a different story.
