So Tuesday turned out to be a tough day. I squeezed out only 320 words, before I was just too tired. (even this post is a day late) New total: 7,235 (just 42,765 to go!) More tonight, I hope.

At the end of Day 1, I’ve logged about 970 words in about 90 minutes of writing.Continue reading “Day 1: NaNoWriMo and Me”
