Welcome to week forty-four.
And NaNoWriMo has started! As you can see, I have added the word counter to my post, so you’ll be able to see my progress as I go. Hopefully, I’ll be able to manage it, but with the current home/life situation, I can’t guarantee it.
Wordcount for the first day was 3,177, as you probably will be seeing my Monday count as well by the time you read this. It is beginning to flow well. I’d thought about those opening scenes so much, I almost knew them off-by-heart, except, they did veer a little, but not so much as to change the direction of the story.
I think the scenes I’ve already planned out should do me for tomorrow as well, and then I need to decide what comes next. I have lots of random scenes planned out, but with no order for them. They are things that need to happen, I just have to work out how to get there.
Anyway, that’s a good start, so I’m happy.
Nothing on this novel this week, as planned. I hope to do some editing during NaNo, but I’m not going to set any targets. It’ll be an as-and-when situation.
I submitted one of my short stories to a competition, but the other one, I’ve decided to do something different with it. I decided I didn’t like the competition’s terms and now I’m going to submit it to somewhere else, that’s not a competition, but now I can make it a little longer, which is good.
