NaNoWriMo Day 5 - 1/5 completed

Today was a great writing day. I got two sessions in and cranked out 2,483 words. In addition I finished a chapter/section that came to about 6,500 words. I am pleased.

That puts me now over 10,000 words which by my calculations gets me to 1/5 of the way. My approach to heavy sketching and planning is making this goal seem very feasible and well within reach. I do fear a block coming soon as I don't have enough planned out for the rest to get me there but that means I just have to get in more imagination time and work on that.

If you haven't guessed I don't write without a rough outline or plan. I could free flow it, most of my blog posts like this one are purely based off a title and away I go. With a story I don't think that way in the creative space, yet. Practice and write and I will train my brain to.

I am having a blast and can't wait to see what I end up with at the end and when I get to the end. The way to the end is to get more, marathon session of 2-3,000 words instead of trying everyday to hit the average. This is just a draft and I can already tell that it will expand and get better but I am holding back really, really hard to not review and edit. New content only. Editing is for later.

50,000 will become 75,000 no problem later on. Until then get the meat.
