No you didn't!

Yes. I. Did.

I began a new writing project on the second day of NaNoWriMo, which is better, of course, than switching projects on day twenty or even day ten. After meeting my 2,000-word goal last night, I read my story and decided that, while I think it's a good idea, it just wasn't working the way I wanted it to work. I went to bed discouraged, even entertaining the idea of quitting NaNo altogether. But then this morning I was struck by a plot bunny, and my shiny new NaNo project, a young adult novel I'm really excited about, was born.

So now I'm frantically trying to catch up with the rest of the herd. So far today I've written nearly 1,200 words, and I hope to hit my two-day minimum of 3,334 before I go to bed tonight. If I can get more words, that would be even better; my original plan (before the project switch) was to reach at least 4,000 words by the end of day two.

So if you've got any luck to spare, please send it my way. :)

How are the rest of you NaNoWriMos doing as we near the end of day two?


  1. Good for you! I had to scrap a week's worth of work back in July. You know when it's not working, so seriously, go you! Scrapping work (especially when on a tight schedule) is hard to do. Sending you all the luck I can!

    I haven't done any writing at all today. Rough 24 hours here!

  2. That's really brave to switch! Sounds like you're doing well and writing something you love so that's always good.

    My word count is slightly insane. I've never written this fast in my life. So here . . . *tosses you a handful of luck* :)

  3. Thanks, Caitlin! I hope everything's okay...

    Yeah, I loved my first idea--still do--but I just couldn't get it to work the way I envisioned it. I appreciate the luck!

    Linda, I saw your count. It's fantastic! Thanks for the luck! :)

  4. take it easy on yourself!
    how about 3k today and 3k tomorrow...spread it around =)

    you're doing great!
