And So it Begins ... NaNo

In a little over two hours it will be November 1st here in little ol' New Zealand. The official start of NaNoWriMo 2010.

While I haven't managed to get to the plot points I talked about on Friday I have made good progress on my Character List - it is full and over flowing with interesting characters. I've complied an intriguing list of gadgets. I have lots of information about the culture and place swimming through my head, though I haven't had the time to set much of it to paper at least it's there and I can note it as I go.

I have to confess on the eve of NaNo I'm feeling really exited about getting immersed in this new world. I've had to tie my darling muse to his chair and gag him, he's that keen to get started. My head is buzzing and my fingers are itching to get writing Mercy's story.

So how about you? How are you feeling on NaNo's eve?

Inspired? Unprepared? Are you nervously biting your nails to the quick? Or are you just chillin and surprising relaxed?


  1. Well it's now 1.15pm Nov 1st. And I'm just about to start writing! Wish me luck.
    Love the picture - cool outfit and weapons. An acquaintance of Mercy, perhaps?
