Nanowrimo Update

I didn't get a chance to write Wednesday, but I tried to make up for it a little bit tonight. I just finished writing 2,148 words which is more than I wrote all month last year.

My plan this year is not to reread anything. Mostly I am going to tell a string of stories of wild parties. Those are always entertaining. The main character is bored at a wild party and reminisces about wild parties of the past structured around favorite sweaters she has lost while drunk. I will also tell the imaginary lives of the sweaters after their split from the main character.

I may use night clubs with the lights turned on as another device of reminiscence.

I'm about ten days into an experimental 30 days of abstinence from alcohol and cigarettes, which is probably why I am writing my novel completely about smoking, drinking, and taking drugs.

I'm going to let people read the novel as it progresses, not that I think anyone will actually read the whole thing ever. If you'd like to see tonight's big 2,000-word achievement, it is on this Blogger page.

    Dear Tracy,
    Here's why I write: I saw your lovely photo of Serena Saltzman. Serena was a friend of mine in Madison, Wisconsin from back in the dorms Freshman year. Then one day she took off on her bicycle back to Taos. I saw her riding up the main drag - State Street - and said, "where are you going?" and she said "Taos." At the time Serena was notorious for smoking Drum cigs and doing little drawings and poems in a sketchbook while drinking endless cups of Jo at the IHOP. She also taught me quite a bit about the world outside my little bubble. Anyways, if you happen to see her, please say hello for me.
