NaNoWriMo 2005: Day 2

4611 words. Just made it. Sex scene number two is horrific and bloody. I think I'm going to have pacing issues, but this is the first draft, after all.

NaNoWriMo 2005: The Kickoff



The first 239 words have been written. I have what looks like a good opening. It's suggestive, both of the horror and the eroticism. I think next I'll set up the MC's character, pre-curse.
EDIT: I'm now up to 708 words. I'm way behind today's goal. I just finished the scene where Eric (the MC) meets Lenore (curses him). I'm not happy with it. I started with them on the dance floor and tell about the initial pickup, but I think I should rewrite it from the pickup. But not now! I'll have to leave it and go on with the next scene. It's going to be the first sex scene, so I don't want to go overboard, but at the same time I have to set a standard.
EDIT: Finally broke 1000 words. Now at 1124 total. I _lost_ 500 though. It seems that if I don't take frequent breaks, I do stupid shit, like closing the document without saving because I get distracted and forget what I'm doing. I could have sworn this program had autosave.
EDIT: Made it a little late. 2314 total words. I've finished what may not be the hottest, but is probably the creepiest, sex scene. The bar has been set.
My next NaNoWriMo post will be new and I'll hopefully get 4000 words total before midnight. I'm going to add a wordcount counter to this page, too.
