NaNoWiMo Update: Week 1

Okay, so Week One of National Novel Writing Month has come to a close. Where am I and how is my novel going? Glad you asked. I'll tell you. :-)

Word Count: 41,911. Yes, I know this is completely insane. But you have to keep in mind that I'm heading for 100k instead of 50k, as I am apparently incapable of telling a story in only fifty thousand words... :-P

Deaths: 3, all off-screen. Much less bloody than my last nano. So far, heh.

Characters: Kinda getting to know them now, and all the main plot threads have been introduced... I think? Nobody is really behaving like they're supposed to, as characters usually do whatever the heck they want. But you'll have that.

General Story: I'm not entirely sure I actually like my novel so far. No, that's not true. I do like it. It's just... weird. Or something. No idea. Moving along. :-)

Next up, 50k!!

NaNo Rocks My World

This weekend I am in Tucson, kicking off NaNoWriMo with people I met on the internet. Awesomeness has ensued:

Less than two hours!!


Crazy after Olive Garden.

Also, I just hit 10,000 words!! I don't even know how that happened. Wait, yes I do. I've been sitting in the same spot writing for over 24 hours now.
