National Novel Writing Month: Day 0

I’m back for my third attempt at National Novel Writing Month. This time, I’m keeping a daily journal here in the Vale. These will be short entries, to save time.

Day 0
Today the exhaustion of the last few weeks caught up with me. At some deep level I wonder if getting sick was a form of procrastination. I’m typing from my bed now, not anywhere near where I’d planned to be by Halloween in my novel preparations. And yet, I feel curiously hopeful. I’ve figured out much more about the alternate history portion of my urban fantasy. I’m just going to devote some time every day to continuing on the world building and outlining even as I write. With any luck, I can still hit my word counts.
