Happy (late) Thanksgiving, everyone! It’s a bit of a wake-up call to many of us writers, as it means that we only have a few days left of NaNoWriMo. And so, with the end in sight, I come to you with another update.
And it’s kind of depressing.
At this point, there’s no way I’m going to hit my 90,000 word goal. Between my late start, continuity struggles, and some hefty writer’s block last week, I am just too far behind.*
*But! I will definitely be hitting the 50,000 word mark, at least. I will be done with a significant chunk of the book, including all of Harael’s POVs and most of Tymun’s. All that’s left to do is finish off the climax for Tymun and then move on to Eritan’s stuff, which is the smallest of the three characters’ POVs. As a little bit of a celebration, I am going to relent and post another Harael chapter at the end of the month. It’s pretty crazy, and really kicks off the action for his storyline. Keep an eye out!
One thought on “AFC NaNo Update – Week 4”
I know your feeling about not hitting my initial goals. I hit my ultimate goal of finishing the draft, but it was just barely over half of my original wordcount estimate. Add in an absolutely depressing rate of writing speed after the first 7 days, and this wasn’t my NaNo. But the draft is done. Letting it chill before piling into the second draft in January.
