NaNoWriMo, Day 1!

So today is Day 1 of NaNoWriMo, as I'm sure you know. Unless you live under a rock. Which I'm pretty sure you don't, if you're reading this blog!

And if you've read this blog before, you'll probably be aware of the fact that I freaking love NaNo.

Well, I capped off Day 1 with 3,367 words. Definitely not as high as my Day 1 in Camp NaNo this summer, where I wrote over 6k. x_x no idea how I did it. But 3,367 is over twice the daily goal, so hooray!

My NaNo novel is titled THE DEAD RINGERS, and it's a YA murder mystery, which is definitely a departure for me. I adore murder mysteries, though, so I'm having a really fun time writing one myself.

I'll have a proper post soon (with pictures!) detailing what I did over the weekend! It was exciting! Stay tuned! Until then, happy writing!


  1. ohhh I'm intrigued. I love YA and I love murder mysteries! Can we get a synopsis or photos? I'd be so interested!
    Off to a great start. I wrote 2100 words on day 1 and then decided the story was a disaster so started a new one today!! So I'm a little behind but that's nothing that the weekend can't fix.
    Can't wait to hear more on your story!

  2. Hope NaNo goes well for you. Sounds like you're off to a great start.

  3. That's a great first day word count! And when I did my novel month last January, I had to break out 6000 words in one day. That's a lot! That's awesome that you love NaNoWriMo so much. I like the idea and love to do it, just not in November. I know. Lame. But good luck! I'm excited for everyone participating.
