Community witing

Just got back from my first ever “write-in” at the South Bank Centre, as part of NaNoWriMo 2010. Just enough time to chat to a few fellow writers, but then heads down for a “sprint” – 45 minutes of uninterrupted writing. The wine and another sprint. It felt very strange seeing the concentration on the 50 or so faces there, with everyone typing (or in my case scribbling) away furiously. Or joyously. Everyone working together with a community spirit, and plenty of camaraderie. But at the same time, everyone writing totally on their own, each focussed on their independent and wildly different works.  Nice.

Today’s word count: 4326 (PB!) Total so far: 8296. On target, but it’s early days…
