NaNo 2012 Word Count Day# 5

What's interesting about this year's NaNo is that this dreaded first draft doesn't seem as devastatingly unreadable as previous NaNo attempts. Either (after 3 novels) I'm getting better at this "first draft" stuff, or I'm...well, totally in love with this project, in utter denial, and suffering from some serious delusions of grandeur.

Granted, there is babble. There is little or no description of any character or any setting. I'm jumping around. I'm still writing nasty notes to myself. There is an abundance of back story, though I seem to be working it in without pages and pages of way back when--and this can be easily edited later on down the road. My characters actually have personalities, something I usually don't master till the third or fourth drafts,

And! There is an actual story here. Really! I think if someone (without my knowledge or permission, which, in any case, they would never obtain) were to sit down and read what I've written so far, they'd actually see that story, and possibly enjoy it.

Mood: EXHILARATED!

I hope all of you are having similar success!
