NaNoWriMo Week 1 Wrap-Up

The end of NaNo week 1 has come. You want to know how many words I've written? 70! No, not 70,000. Just...70. Sad, isn't it? I came into NaNo with high hopes. I wanted to write a chapter a day. Little did I know, I'd have a busy week. By the end of the day, I was too tired to do anything this week. Needless to say, this week was a bust.

BUT, I'm not giving up. It just means that starting today, in order to catch up, I'd have to write 2 chapters a day, til next Saturday.

Something good did good did come out of this week (besides our new president-elect): a new story idea - or at least a new character. The teen daughter of the first African American president. I know one of President Obama's daughters is 7 and the other will be 9 next year. What if the children were teens? Being the child of a pres is stress enough, but the child of the first black pres...yeah, that's a book. I know I won't be the only one with this kind of character, but, I'll be adding my voice to the story...putting my own twist to the story.

Happy writing!

I tracked my writing for NaNo last year. I was a slow starter and took a vacation at Thanksgiving. I only spent 17 days actually WRITING, and still managed to "win."

Good luck, Rae.

Write, write, write.
