NaNoWriMo 2016 – Day 10 – 37130

Okay, I think it is time to admit to myself that the wheels have come off of this race car. Sure I’m still able to produce the word count at the fast pace, but I’m getting less and less structure to the story. I want to spend some time to get it fixed up, but that would require planning time I don’t have right now.

What I can do, hopefully, without disturbing the end result too much is dodging around in the different storylines. There is a lot of background and exposition for each of the threads, so those are effectively bonus words that I can rip through at a moment’s notice. For instance, I worked for an hour and got 2200 words last night. Tonight was 90 minutes and just over 3400 words. Even though I know that I’ll have to rework some of it, I’m happy knowing I still got the task for the day done.

The downside of this though is if I get through all of my planned sections and realize I don’t have enough words to make my goal. This is a very real possibility and so I’m eagerly marching towards 50k so I can feel satisfied in that while I consider whether 100k is still in reach. It feels like it is though, which is why I still put in the time to get to my goal for the night.

No matter what comes out of this project by the end though, I will say this: “I am having fun working on this project.”

That is probably the best part of November for me. I really enjoy the process of writing.
