NaNoWriMo Day One, and Wallpapers

So NaNoWriMo has officially started. Well, it’s technically the second day of NaNo for me, as it’s 12:05 AM at this very moment. I started a bit after midnight last night, as I couldn’t sleep, and wrote for an hour. Not bad for the first session:

Sadly, I haven’t written more today, mostly due to getting home late and other sundry duties, along with a reprise of the wallpapers I did for NaNo last year. I hadn’t redone them this year, as I didn’t know there were others who would like to use them again this year–but I was wrong! I feel quite fulfilled that others remembered my wallpaper and liked it. :3

Again, the wallpapers come in both large and small versions, and with black/white backgrounds:

Feel free to grab the wallpapers from :)

Now I’m off to do a bit more writing. This really isn’t too healthy, I should try to start writing earlier and sleep earlier…


  • True; that happened to me last night as well :D I can sometimes get too nitpicky with dialogue and stuff like that, which really bogs me down.

    Aww I hope Mr. Knightley is better now!

  • I can agree with that, definitely. I found it was much easier to start after midnight, because I was so sleepy I didn’t care if the opening was bad, lol.

    Unfortunately, I woke up really early in the morning and couldn’t go back to sleep. Just about when I was almost ready to fall asleep again, my dog, Mr. Knightley, decided to be sick. :P

  • Haha, yeah, I’ve been doing that myself. The problem is that it doesn’t often work that way, sometimes what happens is that my body’s really tired but for some reason my mind’s still running around, lol.

    One thing that I got from a podcast I listened to this morning is, it’s good to write when you’re tired since your inner critic is tired as well. :D

  • I wrote last night at midnight until about 2:30 AM and got a good start, but when I went to bed unfortunately I laid awake until around 4 AM. I woke up at around 8 AM, and now it’s almost 7:30 PM here and I feel like I could collapse. However, I’ve got nearly 2000 words, and I’m hoping to get a lot more before bed. The good thing is, I’ve been wanting to start getting to bed earlier, and I’m so tired I don’t think I could help myself tonight, lol.
