NaNoWriMo Kickoff And Plot Bunny Bakeoff

I wrote 2,705 words yesterday (by Word's count), around 205 more than the minimum daily writing goal that I set for myself. This Is Not A Bad Thing. Let's see if I can maintain my present course for the month. ;-)

I don't feel like I'm cheating because I already had very nearly 10 written on the novel. I'm not counting that total towards my NaNo goal. The 2,705 are the first step towards my NaNo goal of an additional 50,000 words over and above what I had previously written. If I did count the prewriting then it would be cheating and that's Not A Very Nice Thing To Do.

It's interesting, setting myself a writing goal of five 500-word scenes per day. The 600 gives me a word goal for the scene and the number of scenes takes me a bit cloder in my quest for world domination to my ultimate NaNoWriMo goal.

That's using the word count thing on MS Word, of course -- not the "real" way to count words in a mss. Still... LOL.
