So, I started the first 500 words of my NaNoWriMo project, just freewriting it without letting myself fuss over sense and grammar. I am such a nitpicky, self-editing, perfectionistic creature.

Bah. This is an exercise in letting the words hit the page without too much planning. I have been tossing the voice and the roughest ideas too long. This needs to get out.

It is okay. I suspect the first bit means nothing to anyone but me. That’s fine.

This isn’t meant for anyone’s eyes yet but mine, for now.

I just want to try.

There may be excerpts here and there, but don’t expect more than an acknowledgement of word count.
