NaNo Day 20

2/3 of the way to a finished novel! Or at least 50,000 words of a novel that will need to be worked on. I managed a good writing session this morning, due to one goal I set for myself: I am not allowed to watch the new Mandalorian episode if I haven’t made my word count for the day. That forced me to write 1,400 words this morning in order to catch up, and the episode was well worth it. I just passed the 33K mark and am a scene or two away from the All is Lost beat. I should have an easier time getting through that and the next couple of beats, struggling again with the finale. The finale can make or break the book. It has to be the hero’s victory, and it has to be earned. If those are not present, it will feel artificial. So, I’m hoping that by the time I’m ready to get there this weekend, I will know what my intrepid hero will do.
