Second Week of NaNoWriMo

                Well I’ve almost finished my second week of NaNoWriMo and so far, so good. I’m up to 19,000 words. It isn’t very good, mind you, but it really isn’t supposed to be. NaNoWriMo is all about you getting the story down and then you can make it awesome. Nanowrimo is basically a whole month that celebrates mediocrity.
                I don’t have a name for my novel yet but whenever I do figure that out, I am certain that it will be awesome. Here are the first 65 words from my novel:
                Amelia was surrounded by books.
                She was sitting in the back of the bookstore, her legs were stretched out in front of her and her palms rested on the cool, wood floor behind her. The room was saturated in the smell of the old spines and the weathered pages of a thousand books that held a thousand words that were imprinted on a thousand minds
                Well I have to go keep writing. 19,000 words down, 31,000 words to go!

I love how you repeated the word 'thousands' in your last sentence. Very cool!
