Slowness out of the Gate...NaNoWriMo

Happy 5th of November. Guy Fawkes Night in the UK. The day after election in the US.

Quite a day. And the 5th day of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) for writers everywhere. For me, this is the panic point. If I haven’t been able to maintain the 1449 (or however many) words per day, it is time to play catch up. The longness of the month seems inevitable and will we get those 50,000 words written?

But it’s like stretching before a run – you need to be in this for the long haul. So flex those muscles and write with me, fellow NaNoWriMo’ers!
