I missed a day of NaNoWriMo writing Monday, falling even further behind. So tonight I was determined at least not to lose more ground. Things looked grim at about 11:15pm when i still hadn’t come up with a single new word.
But I stumbled along, trying first just to get the 1667 word quota for today, and then as I had a little momentum to get a full 2000.
And I managed it. Word count as of now: 9320. I was tempted to keep going for a full 10K but with a hard day of work and a fun night of BlogFest fast on my heels, I’ve decided to get some well-deserved sleep.
I am glad to have gotten the extra writing done tonight though, for sure. Some interesting plot developments emerged. Now we have a cell phone mixup, mysterious phone numbers, suspicious police detectives, and a heroine without a car. I think pretty soon we will benefit from the first appearance of a gun.
