NaNoWriMo – Day One

Untitled-1

I started yesterday, feeling slightly nervous.  All my plans, after all, had been tossed in the rubbish bin.  I had so many questions about how I would I do with a new idea?  A new idea with characters whose names I hadn’t decided on until the minute I started writing on day one.

There was no outline to fall back on.  I’d barely had time to put together a new focus board, never mind working out all the details.

So…I did good for day one–1,725 words.  All handwritten.

The story. The characters.  It felt like sinking into a favourite comfie chair.  I can tell I’m going to love delving in this world.

There’s a life to Francis and Caddock, my main characters.

If the Blackbird series was dark chocolate, bitter, moody and rich.  These two men are a light, sweet milk chocolate with a hint of caramel and sea salt.  Tasty, fun and delicious.  I’m liking day one, and day two, even though it’s just started.

How’s everyone else doing with NaNoWriMo so far this year?
