Day 2

Day 2 of my novel writing sojourn. Today's tally - 985 words. Total to date: 1178.

One of the hardest things in getting out a first draft is resisting the urge to edit. Here I am - barely 3 single spaced pages into the story and I already want to fix things - choose different words, alter the opening line. All that can be done later. Right now the priority is to get the story out.

I have a busy few days coming up - not sure how much writing I will get done. Yet, I have made a start. I will try to do at least a little bit each day, even if it is only a few words to keep my momentum going.
