Blowing past the start line

I cheated. I started writing last night. What I wrote sucks--all 98 [passive] words of it--but for now, it kind of captures the feeling I'm going for. I wouldn't have obsessed over this ten years ago. I have to get those non-obsessive feelings back (yeah, at the same time I'm trying to cultivate them in entirely different way).
My father told me I belong to the Demon race when I was eight, and I've wavered between fear, horror and excitement about it ever since.I dreamed about my characters last night. Personality and plot points keep poking me out of the blue. It's kind of driving me mad because I am not an organizer and I can see how confusing my notes are going to make me...
So the madness of NaNoWriMo has begun. I just hope it continues. Insanity is better than boredom.
