Official NaNo Post #1

I just wanted to announce that I am doing incredibly well in this NaNoWriMo thing. In fact, I'm doing a whole lot better than I expected myself to! I was a little anxious when just starting out, but since then I've learned that the best thing a writer can do in NaNoWriMo is ignore all the junk you might be dying to go back and rewrite and simply press ahead, so you can just keep adding your words and discover more of your story.

This morning I woke up early and had a pretty explosive writing session. ^_^ My official word count is now 3,000 words strong! I need 5,000 to meet my quota today, but hopefully I'll have time to enter the rest in later.

I am soooo proud of myself. This session has suddenly instilled the belief in me that I can actually do this thing! I will succeed!

To track my progress, this is my total word count after each day:
Day 1: 1,023.
Day 2: 1,828.
Day 3: 3,000+. ^__^

I am definitely not finished with writing today, but I think it's a good time for me to take a break now. O,o

Cool. I'm at 5180 words. I've had very little homework and lots of time to write.
