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.
