NanoWriMo - Day 3

Words for Today: 4762

UNDO Button is humming along. It may seem like I'm writing a lot, and I am, but it's only because I'm throwing everything and the kitchen sink at it. Sure, I see adventures for Jonah Button beyond this initial one, but the truth of the matter is that it may never see the light of day.

I'm not saving anything for the sequel. Every idea, every impulse that I've had that I think might go into this story is going into it. I can pare it down later. This initial draft is for experimenting.

It's a fun ride so far. I'm glad to be doing this. How is everyone else doing?


  1. Wow - you're posting great numbers! Way to embrace the 1st-draft-goodness.

  2. I'm behind (of course!), but I'm not afraid or giving up or anything. I'll start catching up today.
    You're writing an impressive number of daily words! And I think it's good to throw in everything you've got now. I read in some book somewhere that we shouldn't hold back and use our best stuff for some later book when we think we'll be more experienced. We have to give it all now.


Keep it clean, keep it classy, and jokes are always appreciated.
