NaNoWriMo starts today

I have (perhaps rashly?) challenged myself to write a story this month.

Or at least part of a story.

There's no way I'm aiming for 50,000 words though which is a proper NaNo quota. The best I've ever done was around 35,000 for NaNo quite a few years ago now, but that was writing in English and I've challenged myself to write a story in Welsh.

As I've given up any ambitions of publication, I may as well use any creative urges to practise and improve my Welsh.

Word count today: No actual words but I've made more notes about the characters and theme. A plot is slowly forming and I hope to start getting actual words starting tomorrow.
