NaNoWriMo 2017!



I've been horrified that I am unable to find part of my manuscript on any of my devices. I've concluded that I tucked it away in online storage somewhere, but I decided to just sit down and rewrite as much of it as I can. I even put a poem from the story on Facebook last year, and had to conduct a search of my own timeline to find it. Yikes. I gotta get my crap together. Thankfully, the majority of my first draft is intact. I just have a great deal to add to it. I expect the manuscript to double in size, actually.

I went into this not feeling terribly optimistic, but on Day 2, that changed. I discovered that Google Docs' Voice Typing (voice to text) feature has improved significantly since last year. I tested it out, it recorded nearly flawlessly, and I am at 7666 words on Day 3. So...yay? I'm relieved to be ahead a little, and I almost feel like I've reunited with friends after diving back into the lives of the children of Mossy Hollow.

Let's do this thing!
