1. What Emma wrote on her first day of NaNoWriMo, November 1, 2010

I’ve written 1908 words now, and I hate almost all of them. I think this is a start.

2. Emma’s NaNoWriMo ’10 Novel (fragment #1)

The coast looks much like the bottom of a sea, were it emptied of water. Bleached whale bone sand and pouring sun, dead algea pooling in crevices where maybe fish swim. The ocean itself is not much to look at, certainly not a lovely thing, refusing to glitter prettily in the sun as its sisters on other sides of the world might do. Its decoration is only the air above it, and the string of shacks that make use of it, these shacks where the Fish family live.
