NaNoWriMo Day 1

I made my first day word count goal today, which is a good start. In the process, I discovered a few useful things about my characters and realized that one of my plot devices is not as strong as an alternative. So, I am already revising the plot that I outlined in October.

I am not surprised that I am already revising the plot. I had not developed it as fully as I had intended.  I was sure there were problems with it that I would discover as I started writing. And, I always leave room in my character development sketches to flesh out the characters during the writing.  I find it more fun that way.

The biggest challenge so far is that my family commitments are changing and I will have fewer writing days in November than I had originally anticipated and I must therefore increase my output on the days that I have available.
