I started my novel last night. Wow, that sounds weird writing that- I mean a few paragraphs is certainly not a novel, though I suppose it is the way the vast majority of novels start. Anyways, I started writing it yesterday and continued typing today. I wrote a lot more today than yesterday so I think that is good. I am not however, reaching the word count goals that I should be to stay on track to reach 50,000 words by November 30th. I am also finding it difficult not to edit as I go a long. I am trying very hard to just write, stream of conciousness almost so that I can go back later and refine refine refine.
This is an interesting project so stick with me to see how it goes. Oh and of course, I am attempting to write a Young Adult novel! Did you expect anything different?
