No, NaNoWriMo isn’t ending early. No, neither am I. Yes, I realise this title may have the risk of inducing rage (possibly of the Adamantium persuasion) in a certain comic book reviewer. Where am I going with this? Well, I’ve realised that when you start writing at not too late an hour and consistently manage to fit in a couple of writing sessions, you can actually make some decent progress on your writing! “WHAT?!” I hear you reply in shock. I know! Crazy right?!
In all seriousness, though (I know, BORING!), the aforementioned ‘method’ is the one I used today and while I haven’t fit in much else, I did manage to write to such an extent I’m less than a day behind on schedule! Not too much less, mind you, but it’s closer to getting back on track than I’ve been in a while and it’s a major confidence boost! You could even say I have, one more day (title drop!) to catch up with! Just a few more days like this and I am set!
While the word count increases, moving along the story looks like it’s slowing down a bit. I’m at a point that I’m writing a part of the story that’s in-between the broad lines I set out for the plot, so it takes a bit more effort to get done. Of course, after some pretty intense scenes that just took place, slowing things down may not be the worst path to take. Plenty of time for big action-packed confrontations and the likes.
And that’s it for today. Aside from my pondering the creation of a soundtrack for the story (which wouldn’t even be actively worked on until after November, of course) there’s little else I really have to tell. So, I’ll be calling it a night relatively early for a change and I will see you all, tomorrow! ^_^
