Yes, better, I was better at NaNoWriMo-ing today.
Still below the word count, but - things took off in an unexpected way, a background character became one of the most, if not the most, important character in the book. I say 'book', I mean 'scribble'.
It's exciting. It felt good. It wouldn't have happened if I wasn't doing NaNo.
And today I reminded myself that however I move forward with this is okay. It doesn't 'fit' at the moment for me to write reams of prose, and I'm probably not ready for it. My novel is still a fossil that I'm dusting off (that's a Stephen King-ism from his writing manual On Writing). So I'm playing around and making notes, often just typing ideas out or questions about where things could go, how characters link together, or scenes I should include.
It's fun! And it should be. I will remember that.
Oh, so wordcount: 2017
All good in the hood.
(yeah, I just said that.)
