First person present

At VP, George G. said to someone that writing in first person present can be a really interesting experience, so that's what I'm doing.

I just updated my NaNoWriMo page. I've written 4515 words since midnight (that's about 2000 last night, and 2500 this morning). My novel is called "Not Quite Cold Enough". It's a YA novel about a karate club in a northern medical outpost that finds itself in a battle against zombies. Justine Larbalestier had made a post a month or two back about not enough YA books with female athlete protagonists, which gave me the idea for my main character to be a girl brown belt. Perhaps I would have gotten there anyway, once I started writing. Probably, considering.

Yeah, I'm like 9% done.

I'd really like at the end of the month to be able to write "The End", not just "Well, there's 50,000, I guess I win!"
