month of insanity, day one

NaNoWriMo began today. I started at 12:01 a.m., and I wrote 787 words before I went to bed. At this point, I think my novel is headed towards being really, really terrible. But the point isn't to write a good novel! (I didn't know what I was going to write until I actually started writing. I'm now questioning the wisdom of going with that idea, but I've already started, so I'm sticking with it!)

I left for church at 10:15 a.m. and didn't get back home until 6:30 p.m. Since then, I've written about 300 words and procrastinated a lot!

Here's my official Day 1 picture, complete with the items that will help me survive this journey:
  • laptop (which has Facebook pulled up. Facebook is the procrastinator's dream/nightmare!)
  • candle (for ambiance)
  • liquid refreshment (in this case, lemonade ... but I've already consumed way too much pop!)
  • Burt's Bees (there's actually a second one on the other side of the laptop. Can't risk having dry lips!)
  • cell phone (to keep in touch with Blendy, who is also attempting to write a novel.)
  • headphones (way more comfortable than ear buds ... and they make me look so cool!)
  • comfy pajamas ('cause what girl wants to be uncomfortable while torturing herself?)
You can keep up with my progress by checking my official NaNoWriMo page. Wish me luck!
