Ladies & Gents, Start Your Engines...

NaNoWriMo 2007 – Day One: Got off to a rockin’ start this morning. With cup of java in my hand, and fear in my gut, I bellied up to the computer desk and opened the blank screen.

“Where we going today, Caleb?” I asked, my fingers poised anxiously over the keys.

“Believe we’ll ride this buckboard into town and drop off this dead guy, ma’am,” he answered in that slow, quiet drawl that made me remember why I picked him as my hero.

He tipped his hat and gave a short nod and we were off.

Word count today so far – 2,322 words.

“Thanks Caleb.”

“My pleasure, ma’am.”

“Quit calling me, ma’am.”

I think I see what might be a hint of a smile creasing the corners of his hazel eyes. “Yes, ma’am.”


More NaNo Insanity going on over at Creative Insanity as the RWAC crew gets down to business.

I love your hero - doesn't hurt that he looks like Christian Bale.

Congratulations on a great first morning. Day 1 of NaNo and it's a blast so far.

Good job on the word count. I haven't even started yet, I've been stuck at my Evil Day Job. :P
