Off to a good start

And the first day of NaNoWriMo is done for me: 2078 words. Not bad, right?

I must admit it was a struggle to get going. Part of it is that I’m picking up a story at a very certain point and had to recall a lot of world-building details I hadn’t messed with in over a year. The other part of it is almost surely that I am out of practice. The nonfiction writing style of a blog inhabits a completely different headspace from writing a fictional novel. Takes some adjustment, to be sure.

I also made some changes to this site’s layout, and I hope you like them. Took some manual CSS editing to get the colors how I want them. I’m not entirely happy with the background image so I may change that at some point.

I don’t know yet if I will update this daily. We shall see. I may not always have something to say, or I might be tired. Besides, I don’t want to bore people to death.

I will be updating the progress tracker in the right sidebar, however. In case it’s not evident, I’m working on _Totality: Fortress Ghosts _this time around.

If you’re also participating in NaNoWriMo, I wish you the best of luck!
