Day 9, 1761

I think this is my first time working with a sinister character from the perspective of two different observers. The farmer instantly felt something was off about the guy; the woodsman is much less suspicious, largely because the sinister man was able to offer him some shelter for a night. I hope I wrote the character consistently, but of course that is something to worry about in the editing stage.

The story didn’t necessarily progress far today, but I did setup some of the context for the events that will be happening in the third part of the story. For now, I’m content with how it went, though I will say the words did not erupt from my head quite as quickly as I like them to.

One item I struggle with, both in previous years of NaNo and this year is a bit of pacing. I know that the story is going to be in the vicinity of 50,000 words, but I feel like I’m still in the midst of setting the story up when I’m sitting at 16,000. If that is the case, either the story is going to be longer than planned (in which case, I should step up my daily goals), or it will end up trite in the middle and end because I won’t have the space to take my time with it. My plan at the moment is to just continue developing it and worry about the final product later, but I think I’m looking forward to doing something longer anyway. If I get there, I don’t think that would be a bad thing.

The issue now is that it is late, and I am tired. Time for some sleep and we’ll see what tomorrow brings. Happy writing all!
