Big sigh of relief.
I woke at 5:45 am this morning, went downstairs, fed the cats (which were all sitting around their dishes pointing their paws at their mouths like Simon’s Cat) and made breakfast. I normally don’t have anything other than cereal and coffee in the mornings, as proper food makes me feel ill, but in hopes of boosting energy I made eggs and sausage over toast with creme fraiche (accents over letters and the brackety things over vowels never appear right here unless I look up the ascii code, so you just have to imagine them). Anyway, it was good.
And then I sat down and wrote almost 3,000 words. I’m not saying they’re great words, mind you, either collectively or singly, but they are words. And I feel as though the curse has been broken.
Wishing all of you NaNo-ers the best of luck! :) ( I notice this morning that there are almost 96k people on the forums at this time – wow!)
EDIT: 5,131 words and I am DONE for the day. :) I think I had that first-day impetus today, as well as having the buzz from writing the scene that I was most looking forward to, which takes place in a goblin market. So much fun imagining what would be sold in a goblin market!
There is a scene that I truncated this morning with the note “Go back and finish later, this is boring the shit out of me.” LOL…
