Welp, I managed to cock up the first day of NaNoWriMo. We threw a Halloween party on Saturday night and although I drank quite responsibly, I still managed to wake up hungover. My tolerance for alcohol is so poor, I've wondered if I may be slightly allergic to it. Both my brother and all my cousins on one side of my family have independently come to that conclusion as well, so perhaps it's genetic? None of us are drinkers as a result, but it's hard to completely avoid alcohol at every social event, especially if it's your own party.
Anyway, I managed to eke out a few hundred works by the end of the night though that was under quite a bit of headachy duress.
The first time I tried NaNoWriMo, I never even came close to the average daily word count I needed to hit 50K. Even now, I wonder how it can be possible. There's just too many things going on in my life. It's hard to set aside that much time to write. However, I'm not going to crucify myself for failing to hit word counts. I'm more interested in trends than absolutes. Still, even trying to hit that goal - it's going to be tough.
As a consequence, my posts on this blog may have to decrease a bit, for just this month. Hope you'll understand. Maybe you're doing NaNoWriMo yourself?

Help keep me accountable and happy writing!
