All right, y'all. I haven't gotten started on today's word count, but I am up to 6,304 words as of yesterday evening. Of course, if you follow me on twitter (@ALSVossler), you already know this. I nearly up until midnight working on it. I pushed myself yesterday more to finish a scene in my outline than I did to get to my word count goal (which I exceeded by nearly 800 words). Now I have only two more scenes in this 'act' of the novel, one of which should be relatively short. I say should because my writing always seems to get away from me and ends up being way longer.
All in all, I am pleased with myself. Of course, an auspicious beginning does not necessarily mean a fortunate ending, so hopefully I don't lose my momentum.
Happy writing to all those who write--even if you're not doing NaNo!
