NaNoWriMo Chronicles: The Beginning

We’re on Day 4 of NaNoWriMo with sanity still in check, although just barely.  Everything went well, was smashingly good, right up until 12:00 a.m. on November 1st, at which point I hit a block so hard that it knocked me senseless and my frustration level has been skyrocketing ever since.  But that is neither here nor there, I’ll get to that hot mess later, because today we’ll focus solely on the pages from the beginning of the journey, from before the journey even officially started.  Notes from the days of innocence and excitement and a record of all that has gone on in the NaNo-verse that’s not necessarily writing-related.  So here goes, the first scans from my NaNoWriMo ’13 Chronicle notebook!  (Good luck to anyone attempting to read my handwriting!)

Wherein the title takes precedence, along with some personal editing notes to myself.

A short exchange of dialogue, prepped and ready to go for a future scene of lightheartedness.

Because when a story depends on a complicated backstory and character interactions, the writer's sanity depends on a clearly defined map to avoid getting lost.

Notes from the kick-off, a combination of Halloween party and NaNoWriMo extravaganza at 12:00 a.m.

And lo, my friends, the insanity has begun.
