1,200 words for my NaNoWriMo so far, a few hours into the month. Of course today would be the day when I'll be out of town for 12 hours for work, but I squeezed out an hour of writing time before I needed to leave.

Briefly, the story is the basic "journey of discovery" trope, with a guy named Nick who decides after a bad day in Iraq to ride a bicycle across the U.S. for reasons he can't quite define. (I've blatantly stolen the name and general concept of the character from Hemingway's Nick Adams stories, and am taking advantage of my own cross-country bike ride 12 years ago. I figure that this format allows for episodic telling -- when I get stuck, just move on to another day on the journey -- and when I can't think of what to write, just glance through the photo album from that trip and see what pops into my head.)
