A chronicle of the unending journey of the Wandering Author through life, with notes and observations made along the way. My readers should be aware I will not censor comments that disagree with me, but I do refuse to display comment spam or pointless, obscene rants.

I have always known I was meant to write, even when I was too young to know the word 'author'. When I learned that books were printed, I developed an interest in that as well. And I have always been a wanderer, at least in my mind. It's not the worst trait in an author. For more, read my writing; every author illuminates their heart and soul on the pages they write upon.

NaNo Diary: Day Three

At least today I managed to finish editing the first day's beginning, and may be able to move the story forward. Of course, I had to trim a lot of words I'd already written. During the past three days, I have written quite a few more words than the number that shows up in my total. That's why you're supposed to save the editing for later. The trouble is, especially in the beginning, it is easy for a story to drift off course. With luck, I'll pick up some speed tomorrow...

Today's Total: 428 words
Days Left: 27
Cumulative Total: 2,444 words
(2,557 words short of target)
