NaNoWriMo 2015: Day 15

15 Nov

After my personal best day yesterday, I’m down to a more reasonable 2,177 words today. I got slowed because I needed to rethink a few things in my flexible outline. Late last night, I reach a scene that I had mapped out back in October. The only problem was that, after actually going through the writing process, the scene as envisioned didn’t work. So I tweaked it. And then I had to tweak another one. And then a brand-new scene emerged.

Oh well. Progress was made and the story moved forward.

This is the exact halfway point of the month and the novel. At the start of the month, I said that my only goal was to complete the novel by month’s end regardless of word count. I think my pace proves that I’ll likely reach 50,000 and beyond, but my goal is still a completed novel, no matter the word count. If the story sudden resolves itself in 10,000 words, then it’s a win.

I hope y’all’re doing well. Onward and upward!
