Half way mark

NaNoWriMo update: I’ve reached the halfway mark for my word count. I’m going to need to average 3,125 words per day for the remaining 8 days of the event to reach my goal. Fortunately, this is not impossible, as that’s roughly the word count I posted today and yesterday. And with Thanksgiving Thursday, I have a little extra time to churn out more text.

The plot is not completely lost, but it’s deeply confused and stagnant. I have at least managed to get the main character out from her apartment a few times, but oddly enough the other most common locale for the book is an interrogation room at the police station. I have never been in an interrogation room, so I’ve had to concoct it from what I’ve seen on TV cop shows and movies. It bears a mroe than passing resemblance to the questioning rooms of “L.A. Confidential” and “Homicide: Life on the Street” in particular.

The chick lit plot line appeared for a while, then faded for a few days. I will try to bring it back tomorrow. A gun finally made an appearance today, and for that I was grateful. Maybe tomorrow I’ll work in Christina’s recommendation for a chocolate gun. Mmmm!

  1. Go, Cindy, Go, Cindy! I can’t wait to read your story one day. I’m often deeply confused, I enjoy chick lit and I loved “Homicide”. If your gun becomes chocolate, I’m sold. (Make it dark chocolate, sleeker and more refined than milk. Definitely more gun like. I guess.) Keep going!
