Things learned from NaNoWriMo, Week 1:
1. If no one calls or texts you after 9pm you can get a lot of writing done.
2. You know you're with the cool kids when mentioning NaNo elicits an avalanche of "Me too!" comments.
3. Setting the kitchen timer for 20 minutes and then typing like a maniac really buffers the word count.
4. Fellow WriMos are the best cheerleaders EVER, especially when they're unleashed on Twitter.
5.Chocolate covered blueberries are excellent motivational snacks.
Next big update will be Monday, November 7th. See ya then -- and if you're in the US, don't forget the time change! We get an extra hour's typing in this weekend, woo!!
