Happy Thursday, Aledan Merfolk! As you can see from the title of the post, NaNo’s going about as well as expected for week three. I have about 12k words, which for me is 7k behind (I’m so far behind on actual NaNo wordcount I haven’t even bothered to keep track), but I did make it to the first plot point, and once that scene is thrown out and re-written it’ll be really good.
In fact, I’m throwing out every single thing I’ve written so far except for this sticky:
Which is kind of funny, because I haven’t even reached that scene yet.
I’ve been stuck for a couple days on what happens after my first plot point, so I’m going back to that scene and taking it in a different direction to see if doing something completely different will work.
I still have no idea what will happen on the way to the midpoint, except for that sticky.
Other than NaNo, YAllFest was a blast. It was so big this year that it took me an hour to find anyone I knew, but once I did we had a great time going to panels and eating (and eating, and drinking, and eating some more). I didn’t see everyone I had hoped to, but like I said: there were thousands of people there this year (I’ve heard the unofficial number was 12 thousand). It was nearly impossible to find anyone.
This week the dayjob is busy gearing up for Thanksgiving. It’s really strange that our busy season coincides with retail’s busy season, but perhaps that’s why the lab is *right* next to the mall? At least we’re close enough that I can walk to Target if I need to 🙂
Speaking of busy, I haven’t transcribed anything I’ve written since last Tuesday, so it’s time to get on that. Have a wonderful weekend, Aledans!
