1,678 words: Off to a strong start

I attended the NaNoWriMo kickoff party tonight, which I blogged about on my novel's website.  It was busy, like last year, but it was a blast!  I made a few new NaNo buddies, and got off to a strong start with 1,678 words — my goal for November 1st already accomplished.  (Not that I plan on stopping there — if I have some time in the morning, I'll write some more.)

I'd been hoping to get to 30k before NaNo started, but as it turned out I didn't have another chance to write after reaching 24k on Thursday.  That's fine, though — I'll just have to try to make 55k during November, instead of the usual goal of 50k.  Technically, then, my daily goal should be a little over 1,800 words, but I'll let it slide for tonight.  I'm tired and have a big day ahead of me tomorrow.

If you're doing NaNo this year, how did you do right out of the gates?

Just at 1,400 this morning. I'm hoping to get to 2,500 by the end of today, but lord! It's daunting. :)

Lori, I saw from your blog that you kept getting interrupted. Fingers crossed that today will be better. :o) I succeeded in getting to just over 5,000 last night (total since November started) before going to bed. Two nights of writing until I fall into bed exhausted! I can't keep that up all November!
