My Novel is Underway!

I had plans that when November first rolled around at midnight last night, I would get my first sentences written for my NaNoWriMo project, but things went awry and all my best laid know what happens.

So then I decided that TODAY I would get my writing started and well...that plan went awry, too. I actually didn't get my novel started until long after 3:00 PM, and I was not feeling that great either, but I did it anyway! Now I can say that I have the first 1974 words down on paper and my novel is truly getting its primary start.

I'm so glad, and one thing that stressed me just a bit earlier today is that I didn't feel very connected to my story the last few days..I worried that I'd lost my oomph for it, but as soon as I started writing, the zeal came back! Tomorrow I won't be silly again and try to plan my writing day, but I trust that the Lord led me to this topic and to the people who would help me know what to write about, so that means, He is the One in charge of tomorrow. Whew! That takes the pressure off! I just have to be pliable and at the ready for the moment to write as He brings me to it.

So to all those who are attempting NaNo--woo hoo--way to go and keep on writing!
