The morning and I are not friends, but we’re working on it.

It's 7am on November first, readysetwrite! This time last year I was super excited to start my NaNoWriMo book, driving along to a coffee shop to do so, and my car got all smashed up in an intersection. My first car wreck, aw how sweet. Not really, it ruined my day. So as long as today does not end in tears I'll count it a success. Although, after the aforementioned crash I did have the perfect name for my bad guy. It had been driving me crazy that she did not have a name and then who comes on the scene at my wreck but none other than a surly lady cop with a great bad guy name. Perfect. However my bad guy this year already has a name (well, sort of) so I think I can do without the crash. That and I don't have a car at the moment, so I think I'm good. Hear that Universe!!?? Don't mess with me, I'M GOOD! Leave me be and let me write!

So why am I on blogger and not writing my book? I don't know, just am. Today is like turbo writing day, I'm going to try and get a good word count start this morning, then I'm going to meet a group of my classmates at the library on campus to edit stuff and work on other things for class. NaNoWriMo is always hard, but I think it will be harder this year, what with being here and all. It will be interesting watching my writing buddies word count's go up this year with the time difference. Really that will be weirder for them. If I succeed in writing in the morning like I am today, then by time they wake up it will look like I stayed up all night writing. Whatevs, can't wait.

Alright, better get to it. I have a kicking new playlist and a new first scene I thought up as I was falling asleep last night that I actually bothered to get up and write down for once, that's all you need. I'll leave you with a few pictures from Halloween. You all know how much I love Halloween. Well, most of you do anyway. For those of you who are just tuning in, I LOVE HALLOWEEN. My outfit was not the most creative this year, Little Red Riding Hood, but I was just in the mood to be a fairy tale character, like most days, but only on Halloween is it socially acceptable.

Happy writing world!

Not original, but cute. And way better than just putting on a glow-in-the-dark "Ghostbusters" t-shirt and calling yourself festive.

Good luck with your intensive writing.
