NaNoWriMo, day 1


Well, I’m at the end of day 1 of NaNoWriMo, or as near the end of it as I’m going to get — I have an early morning tomorrow — but more than 3,150 words is a hell of a start considering I wasn’t sure I was even going to try this year.

And you know something? The book is feeling pretty damned good already. A lot I’m going to cut in revision, but none of it embarrassing, and the vision of the novel is getting clearer by the hour.

I’ll be updating more fully at the end of next week, when I have more to report, but in the meantime, keep an eye on my NaNoWriMo page here in the website, or my profile at the NaNoWriMo site, or my word count tracker in the sidebar at the right, for a daily update on my progress.

We’re off and running, gang!

Oh, and PS: if you haven’t checked it out already, my new chapbook, Box Cutters, is available now from sunnyoutside press. If you buy a copy, please let me know here on the blog so I can thank you! And keep an eye out for the book’s Goodreads page, too, so you can add it to your reading list.
