I’ve had a couple of days of just pottering about with the writing and this morning we went out to get a little shopping so I didn’t get to do as much as I wanted.
However, I was quite impressed with today’s output. 1500 words… taking my total to 44,500
More for the creativeness of it than the word count. Having characters inside a whole story world come to life and make their own decisions is just amazing.
The TSK world is solid, plotted and planned. But, there is still room for characters to pop and come alive.
That happened today with a character who is in the series, but hasn’t yet appeared in the novel. It was totally enlightening.
I now have had to set myself another goal. Now that nanowrimo is technically over and my novel isn’t finished, it would be so easy for me to procrastinate December away and not get it done. I want to get it done however for my birthday weekend. 15th of Dec.
So, writing 1500 words a day and I should meet my target. I should have this part of the puzzle done and dusted. Will it be easy? No… because these characters are alive, thinking and feeling.
I guess I will have to see what happens… it is just so exciting though.
Once I have it finished, I am going to take a little break, print it out and then start the editing/organizing process.
