So today I started writing MERCY ME, my NaNoWriMo Steampunk novel.
We got off to a bit of a shaky start, but that is to expected with the first draft of a brand new novel.
I'm still getting the feel of the characters, especially Mercy. It's written in first person, which aside from the odd short story isn't a POV I tend to use, so that is something of a challenge in itself. I'm much more comfortable writing in the third person.
The first 700 words felt a lot like pulling hen's teeth, but it got easier and after plugging away for a few hours I have reached today's goal of 1700 words. So over all I'm happy.
After all it doesn't matter so much at this point if it's a whole lot of dreadful waffle NaNo is all about getting the words on the page.
Besides, with the eclectic cast I have to work with and a plenty of chaos and misadventure to visit upon my poor main character I think we're in for a fun ride. So let the adventures begin!
