I've been waiting for this for months, and it's finally here!
However, I didn't get off to the start I imagined. I've wanted to start this book for what feels like a long time now, so I thought I'd write a load on day one. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case. Almost every word had to be forced out of me. At one point I stopped and said, "I'm supposed to be good at this."
The good news is, as I stand now, I'm ahead of 3 of my past 5 NaNoWriMo counts at this point.
The thing I learnt this week was to stop looking at other people's word counts. Some people are just superhuman. I am human. And that's okay.
So today before writing, I stood at 14,254 words, and that's perfectly good thank you very much!
Fingers crossed I can keep this up during the dreaded week two!
