Ah, the sweet smell of… falling behind.
So, as promised last week, I am going to update on my progress during NaNo here on the blog. NaNo started one week ago today (on the 1st) and I’ve been thrilled and excited to participate in some really cool communities on SavvyAuthors, NaNo itself, and beyond. I’ve dropped into multiple sprints, cheered people on, and generally felt the love of the universe during this time.
Unfortunately, I haven’t felt the love of the manuscript, sigh. I’ve done NaNo a few times before and been very successful—but none of those times involved a Mindspace novel. Adam is not exactly pleased about having his progress tracked in public, poor guy. Worse, he’s pretty dead set on staying in Atlanta. Since I want him to go to Savannah, this is an issue. We’ve had a few heart-to-hearts, and hopefully that gets him moving.
Current wordcount? 6,714 as of yesterday, far behind the 15k I should be at for this stage in the game. Still, once I get going I’m typically pretty fast, so crossing my fingers I should be able to catch up before too long.
Oh, and Adam? You’re going to Savannah. If I have to drag you there one little word at a time.
So here’s hoping everyone else’s November (and NaNo characters) are much more cooperative than mine!
