72k :)

Word count from  69,560 – 72,612

Today’s count 3052

I’ve been awake since the real early hours of the morning, 5am. Because my characters are totally getting to me. I’m at an emotional crossroad with them which is tearing me apart as much as it is them.

But for now, I am stopping. As I am so tired that my eyes hurt.

We are going out tonight, so I am off back to bed for a sleep. Hopefully then I will be able to stop up late. 🙂

Not so sure I will get much more written today, but I might try for an hour or so later.

Enjoy your weekend everyone. Speak  soon.

    • I don’t know why it happens. It just does. Last years Nano I spent months preparing for. Plots, character work and everything. It still never panned out.

      This time I was a pantser, and it worked even better, much more fun. I guess we’ll just have to see where it ends.

      Hope yours is swimming along nicely too 🙂

      • Indeed; sometimes you give a character enough to go on, and they’ll develop a mind of their own. It can be fun to play around with the benefits of both breakneck improv and careful planning!

      • I am so glad that someone else understands this, thank you. 🙂 I feel like I am doing it wrong, but when I read back it just all makes such perfect sense, like it really was meant to be anyway.
