NaNoWriMo day 4

Yeah, so, I’ve just had diner, which was a simply scrumptious affair of pie, mash and sweet corn, followed by coconut yoghurt for pud. Today I’ve been in a much more positive frame of mind, and though I’m still taunting myself with artificial deadlines I’m doing it with wry good humour. Add that I’m happy with what I’ve written and it’s no wonder the cat is purring.

Also, this afternoon was the Formula One Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. It was won by Kimi Raikkonen, and was an excellent race filled with excitement! If you don’t follow F1 you really should. True, it’s not a mandatory part of NaNoWriMo, but it should be. Ludicrously expensive fast car racing and novel writing: what could be a better mix? 😉

What I haven’t done on day four is write as much as I should have. I’m going to be a tad behind going in to day five, but not so much that catching up isn’t doable.

Blimey, the English language is wonderfully rich and infinitely malleable, isn’t it? Maybe, for clarity, I should have said: I’ll be behind on day five, but I can catch up. I love it! There are so many different ways to couch a thought. Actually, that’s a very good point….

Note to self: NaNoWriMo is all about the 50,000 words. Write, write and write! Do not carefully construct each and every sentence while writing or, unless your name is Stephen Fry, you won’t get to 50,000 words. Re-writing comes in December, and then is the time to tweak, primp and tartify your prose.
