NaNo day 1

2456 words, and I woke up with the first few lines of the novel ringing in my head at 415 am, so I got up, wrote:

When the real world ended, not just mine, but the whole world, it was with a wail, no matter what T.S. Eliot, that poet & prick, might have said.  The wailing? Ambulance sirens, to be precise.  

and then pounded out 1648 words in the next hour and a half.

Another hour now, and I’ve got 1000 more words, and I actually think I know where I’m going with it.

Everyone loves a postapocalyptic dysfunctional family road trip, right?  With real family at the end of the road?

*Sigh.*  It’ll be the clunkiest metaphor ever to book, but maybe it won’t be awful.

    Yay! Good luck!

    If you want a reader or a sounding board, you know where to find me (or the husband). I do like a good post-apocalyptic tale, especially if it involves rebuilding society.
