And I’m determined to complete the whole first draft of a novel this November. It may not be publishable, even with revisions, but it will hopefully get me writing again and help me establish a routine that I can continue on through December and into 2017.
It’s day two, and I’m at 3,000 words. I still have an hour to go in my morning routine and plan to pick up another hour or two late this afternoon after visiting Mom and running a couple of errands.
I won’t do more than post a tiny weekly update here. NaNoWriMo successes and failures will be posted regularly on other blogs so I’ll refrain.
Please join me tomorrow when my guest blogger is Teresa Funke, Colorado author of World War II themed novels and books for children.

Good luck with your month of writing. Sounds like you’re off to a great start.
I’ve hit the ground running before and dropped out at 20-30k — we’ll see what happens this time.

Good start for day two!
I wind down as the day goes on, Alex, so it looks like I’ll need to get my word count done as early in the morning as possible.
