NaNoWriMo Day 1

So, for some reason, I had the idea to do a blog post every day for NaNoWriMo.  Not sure why, other than I want to document this experience somehow.

So each day, I’m going to post my word goal, my word count, anything significant that happened, and a 100-word excerpt of that day’s writing :D.  Just please keep in mind that these excerpts are 100% unedited.


Personal Word Goal:  4,ooo/100,000

Minimum Word Goal: 1,667/50,000

Actual word count: 2,144

What happened today: I ran a low-grade fever all day.  Hoping I’ll feel much better in the morning . . .

100 Word Excerpt:

The merchants didn’t like that, though.  They took note of her gown – the gold clasps that held it together at the shoulders, the water-like quality it imitated as it flowed over her skin, but most of all they noted the gold clip holding her long hair over her shoulder.  She was noble-born, which meant she had money, and merchants loved money.

Being noble-born did have one advantage, though.
