NaNoWriMo Day 2

I know, it's an hour after day two. :P That's all I have to say.

Wordcount for Day 2...

2,500 words (Okay, maybe it was about 3 less than that, but I wasn't about to write a whole other scene for 3 words - too tired, so let me round up)

Total wordcount is...

According to WordPerfect 4,997, so I again say, I round up - 5,000!

The second day was harder than the first. I wasn't sure where to go in parts, and I know one of the scenes I wrote needs to be quite a bit longer. I cut it off at the knees because of my aversion to writing fight scenes (this one would have been a practice sword-fighting scene, and I really don't know where to begin with that). I also admit I padded my last scene horribly with over 100 extra words so I could reach my goal for the day because I didn't want to stop in the middle of a new scene I would have had to start for 100 words. At least I'm admitting my weaknesses.

Oh, and the revisng 1k each day doesn't seem to be working. I'm coming up with wonderful excuses in my mind (like I need a break from revising) to aid in my not revising. Willpower - where the hell are you when I need you? Maybe it will show its face tomorrow (erm, I mean today...). Watch for my post on day 3!
