Well. O.O

Okay, first chunk of NaNo novel written, and it totally got away from me. Not a full wordcount yet - I have more writing time alotted for this evening - but the character! Where'd he come from?? Not at all what I was expecting or intending to write. All I knew was that I needed a couple of specific roles filled, I needed a 'narrator' and that I needed to layout some plot stuff. The next thing I know - who is this guy and where did these ideas come from? Not at all the direction I was planning to take, actually. But I like it alright, and it doesn't actually conflict with anything I'd planned... so, okay. I'll run with it.

I've posted the first bit to the NaNo filter - if you're not on it and would like to be, just let me know.

(NaNoWriMo, for those in the dark, is National Novel Writing Month - a crazed month of attempting to get to 50k words on something, anything (well, hopefully an acutal novel). Lots of folks are doing it, and they have an official site here: http://nanowrimo.org )

I've got some orders to fill - a handful or so - and some backend admin work to take care of, but most of the day will be trying to get ahead on my wordcount in anticipation of crazy work days when I won't be able to get to it.
