NaNoWriMo - Day Two

Day two has started out better.  Not completely over the sinus thing, but I feel a little more human today.

Got three ebooks updated yesterday, and I'm up to about 2200 words on NaNo.  I'll have to chalk up another thousand today to get back on schedule, but I don't think that will be a problem.

NaNo is a nice change from ebooks at the moment.  The whole point of NaNo is to just get the words down, without regards to quality or editing- that can all come later.  My ebooks are meant for nearly immediate publication, so there is a little more pressure, even it's self-imposed.

-- UPDATE --

Back on track.  Turned off the TV, fired up the laptop, and finished up at a little over 3700 words for the day, which puts me back on schedule.  So far, the story is a little rough, but that's fine.  Better than fine, that's wonderful.  It's like back in my video production days - you just shoot and shoot and shoot, and you worry about making something out of it when you get to editing.  Writing is the same way - but you can't edit if you don't have something to work with first.  Write and write and write - there's always time to massage it into a real story later.
