Got up at 5AM, yes really. By the time I sat down to actually start writing, it was nearly 7AM. I wrote a good chunk, nearly beating my record of Day One of last year's NaNoWriMo, but not quite. Took a little break in between: ate a little breakfast, cleaned up cat puke, did some stretching. Decided to call it a day. Don't want my enthusiasm to come to a halt, plus I have an article to work on--perhaps the ball of rolling enthuz will build momentum to write other things too.
Oh and what did I do those first few hours? Talked to hubby who called to wake me. I journaled: Wrote my dreams down. Did my spiritual writing exercise. Did my daily morning pages (minimum of three) where I blab and blab senselessly. All handwriting. I set up my little NaNo shrine where I light a candle, have some totems to keep me focused. This year I decided to wear a hat of my late Aunt Rose. No doubt it was stunning on her, but I look like a crazy lady, but hey, I'm having fun. And wow, it's only 10 AM as I post this.
I don't hand write when I NaNoWriMo my story. That's different for me since I'm always a hand writer first.
Word count day one: 5,735 and only 44,265 to go. Think I'll make it? Woot! Woot!
Let me know how all you creative peeps are doing on your journey of creativity! Woot! Woot! to you too!
