Yesterday I wrote about 800 or so words. Today it’s been about the 1200 mark. I’m on 6515 words for NaNo, which I think leaves me about 4000 words off target. The head cold of the weekend has really set me back. I know I can catch up, but I’m trying not to over do it until I know I’m over this cold. Also, this NaNo isn’t just about hitting the 50k for me. It’s about getting a cohesive story written. Already I feel like I’ve got a deeper story than I did in the first draft. (Hopefully) When people start dying the readers will either care for them and be gutted, or hate them and be happy.
I did add a few word to a short story on Sunday. I think I’ve got an ending, and now I just have to connect some dots. Hopefully then I’ll be close to having a first draft done. This story is for a submission and I’m finding that It won’t be what the editors are looking for, but if it’s not it’s not the end of the world. I can only write what comes into my head.
Tomorrow I’m aiming to get up a little earlier than normal and try to get some words down before going off to work.
