Well, the first week of NaNoWriMo-noveling is over. As of yesterday, the Week 1 end point, I had 25,432 words. More than I had at that time last year, but not quite as well as I hoped – I didn’t get all that much done Friday, and then yesterday I wrote only a few hundred words.
But today was the Subway Writing Session for Toronto NaNo-ers, and I had a great time; finally got to see all those faces I missed from last year! (Well most of them.) And Errol, of course. (Toronto NaNo-er in joke, I’m afraid.)
But in other good news, the NaNoWriMo widgets are back! Check out my set (and my progress) at:

I’m having a wonderful time; Mayumi and Darrel are reasonably cooperative characters (although Fox, Raven and Coyote are beginning to irritate me a bit with their interference), so they’re fairly easy to write, and setting it in Toronto is great fun. Darrel lives in my old apartment. Darrel’s sister’s family live in our old family house. And Mayumi’s Toronto relatives live in my new neighbourhood! It’s great fun writing places I know.
(And I’ve even got a number of scenes set where I work – wonder just how much you’d need to know about the place to guess where it is?)
