NaNoWriMo, Day 8: Baby steps

I didn’t get a whole lot of writing done last night after childbirth class, but I concocted a dream sequence for my protagonist that may or may not be an accurate account of him being thrown out of a plane.

Today, I need to crank out a little less than 4,000 words in order to catch up again. Daunting, but certainly not impossible. I’m meeting a few of the Cleveland-area WriMos/NaNites at the Enclave coffee shop in Willoughby this evening, and maybe we’ll do a few sprints.

Two of the Cleveland-area participants have already hit the 50,000 word mark, and are still going. Another was just beyond 40K last night. They are writing robots, sent from the future to crush humanity beneath their heels. We bow to our robotic lexiconquerors.

    And the marital/employment/have-a-real-life status of your fellow wordsmiths? Hats off to them.

    You’re doing fine. Keep it up. Expect the most productivity in the last three days. After all, you seem human as opposed to being an uploaded intelligence.

    One of those who has finished is (I believe) single and works for a library. The other is a teenaged girl. The third, who hasn’t quite finished is, to the best of my knowledge, married with one teenaged son. I’m not certain what she does for a living.

    Correction: He is married and apparently works for twolibraries. Sort of.
