And they're off!

NaNoWriMo started today!  I went to the Lawrence Community Official Kick-Off party last night.  Let's just say that I'm very happy not to be the only one in Lawrence (or at KU) attempting this challenge.

By the end of last night, I had reached over 2,600 words.  For each day of the month, I only need 1,667 words to keep on schedule.  Needless to say, I was pretty excited.  It was totally worth going to bed at 2 A.M. and getting up at 6:30 A.M.  I've just had a few coffees today.  No big deal.

Now I am in the process of camping for KU's first basketball game!  Yes!  Allen Fieldhouse, I've missed you.

I've also racked my word count up to 3,343 words.  I'm just that awesome.  I also know that it is important to pace yourself.  So as much as I want to continue writing the scene I am on, it is more important to wait til tomorrow.  I don't want to burn out too quickly.  But its still good to get a litle bit ahead.  Week Two is supposed to be a little more challenging.

So far, my sanity is intact, I love my characters, and I still need to draw out a map of my setting, but that part isn't imperative right now.

We'll see how everything is going in a few days.  Hopefully, just as well.
