I’ve written 3,036 words today. First day of NaNoWriMo and it’s a pretty decent start.
No, I won’t be doing this on a daily basis, how boring would that be?
I came home, uploaded my word count and got this breakdown. Handy.
Needless to say that the doubts followed right away. Those three thousand words could very well be rubbish. What if this is all completely useless?
What if I loose interest in my story? What if I get stuck and don’t know how to continue?
Day 1 and the nagging has begun. I suppose it comes with the territory. This is, after all, what has kept me for far too long from just going ahead with it.
Well, I’m not going to give up easily. If I’m my own worst enemy in this, then I’m still pretty lucky. Though, I can be bloody stubborn.
I can do this.
I need to do this.
And if I need to moan or vent my doubts, I’ll come here and write some more. Better than sitting in it and letting it stew.
So, rather than doubting myself and what I’ve written so far (which I don’t think was all that bad), I will celebrate the fact that I made it through the first day with a respectable result and will continue on tomorrow.
It’s the weekend, I could very well have finished the novel by Sunday evening.
