But after calling in sick for work, trying to rest for the morning to get my health to a functional state, and then spending the early afternoon finishing off stuff for work anyway (am I dedicated or what?), I finally started on my NaNoWriMo story a little while ago.
So far I’ve written 600 words, which I scribbled down in 15 minutes. I am quite happy with this actually, as I wasn’t expecting to be able to write so fast right from the start, especially when I’m still feeling quite sick. But I also have to remind myself that I need to write another thousand words tonight, and that I also write quickly for the first couple of days.
I also managed to use the word ‘fornicality’ in my opening sentence, after one of my fellow English teachers dared/requested that I do so. We argued about whether the word is a real word or not, but we had no problems agreeing on its meaning. The opening sentence included this fragment of dialogue showcasing the word:
“I’m afraid you’re suffering from a bout of fornicality,”…
The opening scene seems to actually be about a fake doctor, and I haven’t a clue where any of this is leading, but it seems to be fun, and is probably heavily influenced by the amount of comedy I have been both reading and watching lately.
Anyway, back to it! And good luck to all you other Wrimos out there, whether this be your first time or hundredth time doing this!
