I HIT 50k!!!!!!
That’s right – I finally attained that goal, only 4 days late!
The beauty of having achieved that after deciding I needed some directional changes is that there is now a metric wagonload of material I need to write – from the officers bonding with the children, to the antagonists’ scenes, which I have so far completely neglected.
Also, having hit my NaNo target, I now feel as though it’s not cheating to integrate the month’s efforts with the 25k I wrote before, which should help me get a handle on what happens and when.
It’s a good thing about NaNo – because the focus is on doing the writing, every time I hit a motivational obstacle I find a new reason to continue. Thank you NaNoWriMo!!
