Do Haeng Michael Kitchen

Writer. Attorney. Detroit City FC Til I Die.


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.

    Interesting observation about your vision. Good luck on SeptNoWriMo.

    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)? 🙂

      Thank you, Piotr, for the words of encouragement!

      Well, not to be nitpicky, but going by the NaNoWriMo abbreviation, maybe it should be MyNoWriMo! 🙂

        True 🙂
