Enter the Circus! - NaNoWriMo Update, Day One

NaNoWriMo started today. I meant to get up a little earlier than usual to do some writing, but sleep was far too comfortable, and thus I only got started this evening - spent the rest of the day reading a book on literary criticism techniques (not as bad as I feared), editing my extended essay (every bit as bad as I feared) and going for a lovely long wet bicycle ride with the family.

Here's where I stand as of this moment:

Pages: 6
Wordcount: 2,744
Plot progression: Still in the early stages, but heading in the right direction.

I don't really have a plot - just a few major events that may or may not happen in any given combination, depending on where the story goes.

I tried to plan this novel once. It didn't work.

Oh, and I've almost killed my narrator twice thus far. He's currently got a sprained wrist, a seriously bruised jaw, and a rather nasty grounding in the reality of the city.

Sorry Deladier. It's all downhill from here.

    3. Ehehehe, don't give him ideas. He'll just trip over and hurt himself. And only I'm allowed to do that.
