I Am A Robot...

I just thought I should let you all know that I am a robot. Seriously.

I wrote this morning. And I wrote. And I wrote. And when I thought I was close enough to 25,000 to quit for the day, I wrote just a little bit more, adding three more words to be at an even 23,400 words. And then I did the math.

I wrote 4,200 words this morning. What? I went back and did my math again, sure that I couldn't possibly have written so much in one sitting. I added, I subtracted. I stood agape. What? I seriously wrote 4200 words in one sitting. From 10 until 1. Wow.

Hate me. Loathe me. Despise me.

I love me right now.

How is it turning out? Not the word count, but the actual quality?

It's NaNoWriMo. You're not allowed to ask about quality this whole month. We shut off our inner editors and write. The theory is that you can't edit a blank page, so even if it's the shittiest rough draft on the planet, it's still something.

But I'm happy with it, for the most part.

I've so got to give this a go next year. Can we read it when it's done - we do understand it ain't gonna be Dostoyevsky but we'd really like ot. I'm reading Don't Feed the Pixie's Nano as it comes off the presses at the moment. Great stuff!

Keep on writing!
