Well folks, I hit the mark and kept on writing this a.m.
2,663 words on day one. Yippee!
I don't have a title, but I've got two characters named Judy and Celia and a basic plot line. Here's the synopsis:
Two girlhood friends go separate ways as they grow up. Big deal, cliche. But our narrator, Judy, sees herself as the one on the straight and narrow path, the accomplished one, the successful one, while Celia is a wayward soul, floundering in the waves, uncommitted at best. And yet, it's Celia that just might be the happy one of the two, despite her unconventional trail through life. And so Judy's idea of success fades as her own life grows shaky.
OK, that's enough about me. I promise not to berate you all with requests for money all month, but seriously check out this video. The NaNoWriMo organization does a lot of great things for schools and libraries across the country. I'm trying to raise $250, so if you can give anything to this cause, I would be very appreciative. Just think of it as a Walk-A-Thon, only it's a Write-A-Thon.
