Two thousand words

It's half past eight on 1st November and I have my first two thousand words.

So far so good.

I may go back to bed now!

Excellent! Well done. :) You know I just found out you were doing NaNo via the London Forums on NaNoWrIMo, as am hoping to engage myself in it this year too. Enjoy :) (PS-My nickname is smoothestlady on NaNoWriMo)

Lexi said...

Strewth! How do you do that? I'm impressed. I hope you are eating lots of healthy food to feed your brain.

Old Kitty said...

WOW!! Well done you!!!! GOOD LUCK! Take care

Thank you sylvia, Old Kitty and Scarlet!

Ana, I'll look you up over there.

Lexi, yes I am!

It was surprisingly easy as I'd been doing a lot of planning: 2000 words in an hour and a half. But I hadn't reckoned with the CFS backlash and I needed two hours in bed to recover! Still, so far so good.

Well done you! I'm sending the boys off to school, and then I'm going to knock out my word count for the day. Hahaha. I'll still be on word two at ten this evening, then I will get it done

fairyhedgehog said...

iasa, good luck! I hope you get your words in today.

Sarah Laurenson said...

Yay!!!

Nap reward = awesome (though the reason = blergh)

fairyhedgehog said...

Sarah, you're absolutely right! And thank you for the yay!

Jayne said...

Blimey that is brilliant! What a fab way to start the challenge - go you, go you! :)

L. T. Host said...

Yay! Hope you've recuperated well enough to get some more done. You're off to a blazing start!

Whirlochre said...

Great start — here's to you crashing through the 10,000 barrier by the weekend...

Whoo hoo!

(Don't forget to pace yourself. You can write in smaller chunks during the day too. Keep going!)

fairyhedgehog said...

Jayne and LTH, thank you!

Whirl, I saw the word "crashing" and thought "that's right"!

jj, I may need to do that. I was so rearing to go today after holding back for a month! But pacing myself has got to be key. That and a morning cup of tea!

stacy said...

Don't beat yourself up about needing sleep, kiddo.

fairyhedgehog said...

Thanks, stacy. I'm just wondering how to play it so I can get through the month intact!
