Day 1 of NaNoWriMo: 1,671 words

Day 1 complete. 1,671 words. A smidge ahead of the average to get to 50,000 words by November 30th (assuming we count title, author and chapter headers).

That also completes chapter one! It’s more like a prequel chapter, but I kind of like shorter chapters.

I think I’ll be blogging brief updates as I go too. I probably won’t write every day due to other commitments, but I’m aiming for weekends and about 2-3 days during the week days.

Also another note about the book. I put it under Science Fiction. I went back and forth with that. It was Fantasy first but it’s not high fantasy with elves and what-not. But it’s not hard sci-fi either, like with space ships. There is a fantastical backdrop that’s very light sci-fi but it’s not really the focus. I just wasn’t sure what genre to put it under. Probably doesn’t really matter for the sake of NaNoWriMo but I felt the need to clarify.

Thank you so much for the support and encouragement so far!

Off to bed! Will write more tomorrow.
