If It's November, This Must Be NaNoWriMo!

current mood: sleepy

Suddenly, it's November. For some of us, that means it's NaNoWriMo Month (NAtional NOvel-WRIting MOnth). This is the project that encourages participants to write a 50,000 word novel (or 50,000 words of a longer novel) in just 30 days. I participated last year and didn't finish. This year, I'm trying again. My screen name is catpet.

Today, after attending a Northern Virginia region NaNoWriMo kick-off party, I started writing the Stargate SG-1 novel I've been contemplating for the last few months. I don't actually have a plot yet, which is a problem. But I had been kicking around a story idea for some time, and was thinking that the difficulties surrounding it were insurmountable. Friday night, after another local NaNoWriMo event, I suddenly figured out a way to get past those problems. And this evening I did a little research and started seeing some glimmers of plot. They're still just glimmers, mind you, but they are more than I had yesterday.

My word count for today is so pitiful that I hesitate to record it. OK, you twisted my arm.

Today's count: 317 words.
