And they’re off! I was up early (by west coast standards) to sneak in a word sprint or two before Rain or Shine, my Tuesday morning Bible study. It’s always fun to watch the word count climb during NaNoWriMo. If you want a buddy or two, Elza and I are both participating this year. She’s Elza Kinde, and I’m using CJMK as my user name.
While it’s tempting to go crazy and pile up words during the first week, I know from experience that while I can crank out 8,000 words in a day, I’d end up needing a couple days to rest and recuperate. Nope. I do best at a slow-and-steady pace. Which is only appropriate, since I’m working with Tad Pomeroy this November.
