The first week is over and I'm feeling good about things. I have over 20,000 words in the first week, which is way ahead of schedule. My friend and fellow author finished NaNoWriMo in just 5 days! That's 10,000 words per day! You can read how she did it here: http://heatherjustesen.blogspot.com/2011/11/how-i-won-nano-in-five-days.html

Writing tip of the Day:
Copy and paste is your friend. If you are writing a long passage involving a repeated character name, it might be easier to copy the name once and then hit a quick ctrl + V whenever you want that name to appear. It is two keystrokes opposed to having to write out the whole name. This is especially useful if you have a character with an unusual name, such as the main character of the book I'm writing now: Xandir.
