NaNoWriMo: 15-Nov (halfway)

by Rob Friesel

NaNoWriMo: 15-NovWriting location: The Chair…

Halfway through the month and yet more than two-thirds of the way through to the written goal.  I have a feeling that hitting 50k won’t be a problem.

We’ll see about John’s 60,000 word challenge though

Brevity has seldom been my problem when it comes to the written word.

That said, here’s to hoping I can keep my momentum.  Tonight was certainly a questionable exercise.  Last night I went to bed feeling all pumped up and ready to write this next more/less climactic scene to finish out the “Act II arc” and yet it seemed such a struggle to make that happen.  1,392 words written?  Man…  Let’s not let me blow my pace.

We’ll start fresh tomorrow night.  Clean break from Act II.  Fortunately, we’re at a spot where such a clean break is possible.


Today’s Oblique Strategy: Go slowly, all the way around the outside.

Today’s Word Count: 34,298 of 50,000 (68.60%)
