NaNo Day 4, Part 2

I’m drawing close to 10k, hoping to hit it tomorrow. The writing is still going easier than I expect, as long as I manage to come up with the next scene in my mind before I sit down again. I managed another 1k tonight, bringing me to 8,144 words. _________________________ ‚ÄúThis is some crazy, next-level […]

NaNo Day 4

Managed to take my mind off the election long enough to get some writing done. Cleared 7K! If you’ve been following along, you will notice I changed Leon’s last name. While Leon Hart was cool, I think it was a little too cutesy, and someone who likes to disappear would probably pick something a little […]

NaNo, Day 3

Day Three and just passed the 6K mark! After working out a new beat sheet, I also had to update the logline of the novel. The new one: On the verge of choosing to end his life, Leon, an immortal from the lost city of Atlantis, must investigate a murder committed by Jack, a fellow […]

Consulting the Road Map

Ten percent done, several changes already have popped up in my plotting, and so it’s time to revisit the beat sheet. Just as if I were traveling cross-country and chose to take a different route, I’d want to make sure I was planning the rest of the trip properly. And who knows, there may be […]

Nano Day 2, Part 3

Managed another burst of 1,000 words, pushing me just a smidge over 5,000. 10% done! Nothing much to add regarding the process, other than having come up with the twist I mentioned earlier, I’m seeing a lot more potential to this story than I did even yesterday. I just need to make sure the excitement […]

NaNo, Day 2, Part 2

I’ve been able to write a steady average of 1,000 words with every sitting, and I managed to do the same again, hitting 4,056. I may try another round tonight, but even if I don’t, I’m ahead of the curve right now. This session was the first one where I found the words flowing a […]

NaNo Day 2

Day 2 and the writing isn’t getting any easier. But the writing is getting done. I seem to be able to hit a comfortable 1,000 words per sitting (I actually hit 999 today), so at that rate, I only need to sit down another 47 times this month to finish. One of my biggest questions […]

NaNo Day 1, Part 2

Decided to try to get more words in this evening to get to at least the minimum of 1,667 words per day that guarantees a win by the end of the month. I managed to hit that goal, and did a good portion of it during a word sprint. Simply put, that’s where several writers […]

NaNo Day 1

First words down! So many more to go. It’s amazing what I’ve been picturing in my head vs. what actually happened. I’ve been living this story for the last three days, thinking of plot points, and sure of the direction everything was going, so I imagined I would be writing like a maniac at the […]
