NaNoWriMo Day 2

Day 2 has hit. I’ve only written a few hundred words, but I’m okay with this (especially since yesterday I had already exceeded the minimum for today as well). I have to function in this world, making a living, cooking, cleaning, blah, blah, blah…can’t entirely stop everything for NaNo, much as I’d love to.

Thus far, I’ve figured out where my lead character and her husband live, what the premise behind the mystery is and a few key factors in what isn’t the mystery. I could very easily be going about this all wrong, but I’m okay with that. Exploring the writing of a new genre is supposed to be filled with errors, mistakes, inconveniences and new discoveries. I have the feeling that will definitely happen a lot in this one.

I haven’t quite found the narrator’s voice, nor the exact location of where the story is taking place. I’ve picked a generic region of the country, even a large town to focus things around, but, yeah…nothing beyond that.

What discoveries are you making in your novel this year?

The countdown to NaNoWriMo begins.  Less than 6 hours until she begins.  And I’m ready.  There’s a new box of my favorite tea bags (Celestial Seasonings Green Tea with White Tea [Decaf]) waiting to be enjoyed.  The Hawaiian Breeze candle is located nearby, with a stash of matches ready for lighting.  I’ve got my playlist(s) for writing set up…only 5 hours to go!  3rd Win for NaNoWriMo, here I come.

All the best to everyone doing NaNoWriMo this year.
