NaNoWriMo 2012 Writing is Ahead of Schedule!
Toldya I’d kick some writing ass.

Actually Day 3 didn’t go as I had imagined. Despite being in a great writing spot – beautiful, comfortable, and with an endless supply of free coffee – the words came hard and the story developed slowly. I was getting stuck on both dialogue and pacing. It wasn’t until after we were back at home that night that the writing went a little better. By the time I packed it in, I was still short of where I should have been.
Day 4: It went better, but so called “quick research” bogged me down. I know I’m not supposed to go into research – that you’re supposed to just get the story down – no matter its crap, but I’m one of those people where it sticks in my head and annoys the hell out of me until I fix it. So I did.
The writing has definitely been smoother – more in the flow. Why? Because I was writing an action scene – my favorite thing to write. I ended the day a little ahead of schedule.
Day 5: Last night I dreamt about my story – which is always a good thing. I got up a little earlier to empty my thoughts onto the page. It looks good. I can’t wait until I get home from work to get more of the story down and rack up the word count.
Here’s a little writing tip from Mr. George Orwell.
