Day 7 - Aspen Allegations - NaNoWriMo 2012

Day 7 of NaNoWriMo! An entire week has now been completed! It's amazing how quickly and smoothly it has gone. A week of writing an hour a day, and it ended up working fairly smoothly. I'm quite content with the progress so far.

Today I woke up, did yoga, and then the first snowflakes of the incoming nor'easter began to fall. I hurried to get my kayak inside. Everything else had already been brought in and settled down due to Sandy coming through last week. So I was able to incorporate those details into my storyline.

Today was a less-smooth-than-usual day for writing, for several reasons. First, I didn't have anywhere cool to go to write up descriptions of. I was just stuck at home. Next, the storyline also was fairly "quiet" in today's chapter. The characters are just looking at a computer hard drive and seeing what clues are on it. Finally, I hadn't done a lot of pre-thinking about today's chapter. I have been busy with other things. So I didn't have a set progression in my mind of how the story should go for the day. I had to ponder what would be best to include.

Still, the hour went by, the story moved forward. Tomorrow will probably be like this too - more snow, more stuck at home, more background information. Then on Friday I get to go somewhere fun and liven things up a bit :).
