Thought after first day-plus-some of NaNoWriMo:

I really wasn't planning to write a science fiction war book, but that's what started coming out of me yesterday.

I'm likely being influenced. The book I'm reading now? The Moon is a Harsh Mistress by Robert A. Heinlein, and that's a science fiction war novel. I hope I'm not being overly influenced. And I hope the ghost of Heinlein doesn't mind. (He's probably happy I'm a regular blood donor...positivie points for me!)

I'm still hoping I can make my book funny where possible, but something I'd hoped to work into the story probably won't fit, except as a tangent: I wanted to have a gift in the story called "Baby's First Mullet."

166 words this morning so far, in the 10-minute window I wound up having for writing before starting my office work...More later...
