NaNo Progress!  
As of 8:13pm on Day 3, I have 5,139 words. I may write more tonight, I may not. (If I do, I'll post again with my final count for the night)

I do know that when I edit, i will probably wind up not using most of what I have so far. It's too choppy, and I realized the better place to start is a bit AFTER this stuff. What I've written establishes them and their relationship, but... I don't think it's the right place to start the story.

I'm gonna soldier on for where it is now, though, worry about fixing stuff later. As the peptalks say, this is about writing a novel in 30 days, not getting something perfect written in 30 days. Maybe later I'll go back and say "Hey... that dialogue from the very beginning will fit perfetly in chapter 8!" or that the a scene from the part I plan to discard would make a good flashback, or maybe as a story that one of the characters relates later...

But for now, I am ahead of the game still, and I am happy.
