But since I have the first eleven days of November basically free this year - outside of the 3rd's BD celebration - I fully intended to get started on the novel. I've got a few notes, a really basic outline, some vague ideas, and felt like I could find the time easily. That said, I then proceeded to procrastinate until almost 5 pm! Then admitted I was procrastinating (but the wash was done, the dishes were done, and I had worked a few minutes at the Turk after all) and sat down to watch that cursor blink-blink-blink on the blank page.
2550 words later I am actually pretty happy with the first chapter. I introduce my heroine, and got her chased by a monster that no one else could see.
So, I pat myself on the back. I blog. I remind you who may be following me that I am fundraising (Donate to Nanowrimo.org here) and now I'm off to get back to my regularly scheduled evening.
