There are at least two types of Nano-ers. The first type is religiously on top of things: staying up until midnight to get those first few words, waking up early to write before work or school, using lunches, breaks, dinner and dessert to up their word count.
Then there is the second type. They go to bed at the normal time, set the alarm clock early in an effort to get up and type before work but then hit snooze until they are late, write a measly 500 words at lunch, then go out to dinner with the rest of the Wrimos to drink and finish the night with a shopping spree at Victoria’s Secret (in my defense, the cats ate my pajama shirts last week – all of them) and another 500 words of absolute word-puke. And then of course I let out the inner editor to mildly fix the word-puke into something postable.
If you want to read the mildly-edited wordpuke, you can visit Pike’s Revenge and ask me for the secret password.
After day one I am behind 199 words. Not bad. Especially since I plan on writing 15k this weekend – most of it on Saturday.
