Can you believe it's already the third week of November? Next week is Thanksgiving, then before you know it, boom- 2015.
But, first...NaNoWriMo. This is my eighth year, and I'm so very behind! For those who don't know, NAtional NOvel WRIting MOnth (www.nanowrimo.org) is an international personal challenge to write 50,000 words in 30 days. I've done it twice. Even the ones I completed, got all muddled in the middle, and had tons to edit later. Still, it is just the push I need to get CFD (Crappy First Draft) done. I thrive in the ether of millions of writers being productive, updating word counts, and joining prompts and sprints.
So, this year's novel, Age of Immortality: Satan's Daughter (working title), is just over the 15,000 word mark, which is less than half the number I should be at, if I were keeping to the 1,167 word-per-day routine.
But, not to fear. There are whole days ahead where I can do quadruple numbers in long sessions. I wrote over 3200 yesterday. I can keep at it. Never mind that I have no idea what the heck my MC is doing. She's showing up in Nova Scotia, talking to some old guy that must be important to the story, yet I don't know how, yet.
