The opening (and very raw and unedited) lines of my novel:

My thoughts begin to swirl and the feeling in my fingers fade. My favorite show blares. I turned it up but the words make no sense. Voices merge and speed up. Slow down. My body feels so relaxed. So tired.

Does it hurt to die?

I try to focus on some thought. Some feeling. Something that ties me down to the world I know. But it’s too late. No turning back now. Not that I want to.

Will it hurt? I stopped caring. Nothing can hurt worse than the pain I’ve felt for so long. Alone for so long. All my life? Has it been? I can’t remember.Focus. I have it for a second, but the memory fades.

I don’t know why I’ve chosen this way to die. There are so many ways. Google. How many people search for it?

A hundred?

A thousand?

Just me?

Please don’t judge too harshly. As often is the case, I just write what comes to me. I sort it all out later (and I think after this month, there will be quite a bit of sorting out to do).

How’s your nanowrimo coming along? Please leave a comment. And if you’ve posted some of your novel on your blog or on the nanowrimo site, I’d like to check it out.
