10K Day

21 Nov

NaNoWriMo is going awesome for me this year! This past Saturday I was able to write 10,000 words, and it was amazing! I have never written that much in a day in my life and it was magical.

With that boost, I’m definitely on track for reaching 50k by Thanksgiving, after which I will reward myself with good food, good times with the family, and a brand new video game for the holiday weekend.

Not only that, though, I’m at 44k at the time of this writing and I’m realizing that not all of the main characters have been introduced yet. I’m enjoying the narrative that I have so far, but this story is far from over which usually isn’t the norm for my new NaNo projects.

Generally, I reach 50k with a “completed” story. The stories are nowhere finished, but the first draft is completed enough so I have some semblance of a beginning, a middle, and an end. Being a pantser, my first draft is usually my kind of outline.

This thing, though? The one that I’ve been calling “Glory” this whole time? I have no idea how much longer it’s going to be.

That’s one of the best parts of writing, I suppose. The roads are long, but the detours and destinations are the best surprises.

    10k in one day. Dang, that’s awesome. Let the horse run free and worry about cleaning up afterwards.
