September 1, 2016: So It Begins -SeptNoWriMo

DSC01017

The first four pages, 2,455 words.

Later, I added 213 words, which put me at 2,668 words for the first day.  A solid start.

I’m a little concerned, though.  I planned out 20 chapters.  The writing today put me at the end of Chapter Two.  Obviously more fleshing out is going to be necessary as I move forward if I want to achieve 50,000 words at the end of this journey.

There was something else I became suddenly aware of.  When I spend an hour or so in front of the computer writing, then walk away to pick up the mail or take the dog out, my eyesight is a little blurry, requiring a few minutes to adjust.  After being in front of the typewriter for a period of more than two hours, no eye strain.  Walking outdoors to get the mail and take the dog out, my vision was crystal clear.

Better living through typing.

    A very admirable attempt – good luck! I know that for now I could achieve 50k of words per month only if I was retyping somebody else’s text…

    Not to be nitpicky 😉 – as you can call it whatever you like – but shouldn’t it be called MySepWriMo (going by what the abbreviations in NaNoWriMo stand for)? 🙂
