When the DFAT Crew decided to try and tackle NaNoWriMo, we knew it wasn’t going to be easy. Doc and Myrrick decided to go all lone-wolf and tackle the 50,000 words themselves, whilst CheriMonster, Mozeus, CynicNerd and I would be splitting up the behemoth of a task with a bunch of short stories in one.
Needless to say, things are starting off…albeit slowly. He’s some little recaps of how things are coming along.
Doc Speaks out
The Myrrick chimes in
Day 1 of my descent into madness:
Today I started NaNoWriMo the way any reasonable human would: giving up a day off to work overtime under the influence of sleep deprivation and white chocolate peppermint mocha.
Chaz and I were reminded what underachievers we were as Doc reminded us that he churned out 500 some words BEFORE HE EVEN GOT TO WORK. And then he reminds us about halfway through the day that he went home and wrote even more words. Fortunately, he wasn’t smug about it, assuring us that we would crawl out from under the pile of inadequacy that led us to not have written anything yet on day one.
Here I sit with frosty beverage in tow, preparing to churn out some of my words for the day. Chaz requested an excerpt. We will see if I can comply.
