2010 - PaulaO - The Genesis Project - 821

First, my Author Page on the NaNo site: http://www.nanowrimo.org/eng/user/37629

I haven't narrowed down what I will do yet. I have several ideas and will get serious about deciding next week. I don't do true outlines but I do make a lot of notes, more than when I do a "regular" novel.

Dear Diary: it has been under 2hrs and already I feel the strain. My captors effectively distracted me all day and the clock started while I wasn't looking. Even now, I watch the minutes tick off and I find myself wondering if I can survive under these conditions.....

Sounds like a great start to me. :-) Work it.

Got about 800 words yesterday. Just pounded out a scene in my head. Not sure how far it will go....

Good stuff! Do you write your NaNos in sequence or just pick scenes that you want to write that day whether it's in order or not?

In sequence. Closer to the end, when I am seeing the deadline loom yet I am caught up in actual thinking (shudder), I will just write scenes that I want and to heckaroni with the connection points.

It'll all come out in the wash.
