NaNoWriMo – 30,000

I just hit the 30,000 word mark in my NaNoWriMo project tonight. Yay!

That leaves me with 20,000 words to write in 8 days. That is going to be difficult, but I’m going to give it a shot.

I just have to keep plugging away. It is pretty nice to be 60% done with the project.

Good night. 🙂

28,026 Words – 30,000 Tonight?

The writing is going pretty well, though I’m feeling fatigue from staying up to midnight every night. It will be a relief when November is over. I hit 28,026 words last night, just barely meeting the night’s minimum word count. On the plus side, if I keep this pace I’m now on track for 42,000 words for the month.

I’m going to make every effort to reach 30,000 words today. That will be a nice feeling, for sure.

As for the story itself, I’m writing a TON of dialog and just a little bit of description. I can feel I’m writing the skeleton of the story now, just figuring out where they story goes. I figure I can always add some meat to the skeleton on Draft 2.

One plot point I came up with last night involves a library card to a library in the future. How cool is that? Also, yes, there will still be libraries in the future.
