This week is going to be an odd one with Thanksgiving in there, but since I’m parking my little butt at home and not going anywhere, I will be tightening my determination to the sticking point and am planning on working both tomorrow and Friday. I’m finally starting to get some momentum behind the story, and I want to keep it going. Unlike a train, progress on a rough draft can stop on a dime and yet require a full head of steam to get it going again.
Friday I got about twelve pages done, only to realize Monday that I needed to have David in there for both logic and story flow. I did not write him in yesterday. To maintain my forward progress, I simply added a few sentences in the margin to work him in on the rewrite. Doing that allowed me to get a full day’s writing in yesterday instead of backtracking. I got another 14 pages under my belt, bringing my totals to 29,584. I’ll be passing the 100 page mark today if all goes well. My week and a half of prep work still has me behind you NaNoWriMos out there, but I’m slowly catching up! –Kim
