Usually for Nano, I write as many words as possible and in every spare minute I can find. My strategy this year is slow and steady, 1700 words a day in a block of two hours. So far, so good. But, you know, we're only on day 2.

I am doing Nano (or Nano is doing me, perhaps) and employed the brilliant tactic of scoring zero points in round 1 of NYC Flash to ensure that I would not be inconvenienced by competing further in the competition. 
That, at least, is what I am telling myself.
Unfortunately I am already sitting well back in the pack. I kid myself that I wil have a couple of meg days when words will fall like pearls from my pen.
It’s unlikely, I suppose.
But I wish everyone all the best for both this competition and for Nano. 
As usual I will be screaming out my support and encouragement from behind you. Well behind you.

Me.  If I get into the next round, the words I write for that story will go into my Nano total.  That's how I did it last year.

I've written a whopping 900 words so far (typical for me, the classic procrastinator)! Need to turn off the internal editor and just let the words spew out. Printing out my outline instead of constantly stopping writing to open another document to review might help me there!

Forgot to mention what I'm working on. I'm expanding my NYCM short story entry at this link! Excited to make the romantic interest NOT a geologist!

Whoops. Mega days. I’m trying to refrain from edioting editing in the best interests of Nano. But more than happy, of course, to spend such days in thecharming company of Meg.

Was hoping to do NaNo, but this month got way too crazy.  Currently doing two projects: writing the third draft of my 2nd novel Supervillain, and writing the first draft to its sequel (working title Adversary). I thought of doing NaNo for the sequel, but my attention span is way to short for some reason.

Nonetheless, hats off to all that are diving in! GO GO GO!!!!
