Wordcount: 3,310. Bitches.
Places I wrote: my room, my Old English class, my Latin class, and in a grocery store cafe (this last was the first regional write-in)
Characters I introduced:
Well, Ariadne and Dionysus were there of course, and Hermes made an appearance. New characters included:
- Ektor, a bodyguard
- Phoebe, a cook
- Kali and Vishnu, tigers
- Halla, a babysitter
- Unnamed Dionysus-follower, who was unexpectedly interesting and I may have to name him
Phoebe and Halla might get renamed; I didn't have internet at the time so I just grasped at Greek-sounding names but I don't know if they're actually Greek. Teh lolz.
Lessons I re-learned:
- Day 1 is fun.
- Writing in class is easy.
- Regional write-ins are fun.
I forgot how many Wrimo friends I made last year, it was SO much fun to see all of them again! Particularly Darfinkle and Reddening. I sat at a table with this one guy, Eric (screenname: ?), who participated last year but we didn't really talk. We had HILARIOUS times at our table, lol, and he gave me my quote of the night:
"I'm not that motivated. My subject matter is freaking me out."
Tomorrow is my LONG day so I'm glad I built a small buffer today. I'll probably need it already! :P
