NaNoWriMo – day 1

Midnight came and went and I was sitting on the bed, fingers poised above the keyboard and my mind on blank. The agony of the first sentence overpowered me and when, after a paralysis of about five minutes, I finally made myself type something, I disliked it so much that I kept on writing totally off target, making Ally do and think all kinds of things that weren’t supposed to happen. After the first half hour I had exactly 777 words and decided that sleep was more important.

Today was gobbled up by room searching, but I’m not going to sleep until I’ve reached a decent word count. *armscrossed*

Oh, and by the way… the horrendously boring and insignificant first sentence is:  “As I walked through the rustling leaves on my short-cut through the park, I kept re-running the interview in my head.” I sure hope the next batch of words will be better.
