Nope, didn’t make the 20k today either.
On the other hand, it did make me wonder how I’d gone from “500 words today is too hard, 5000 will take forever!” to “5000 words was easy, and now I’ve hit the dreaded point in the book where The Characters Take Over and Do Unwise Things”.
“Succinct. Not that original. Possible mythological reference. Otherwise a little bit on the sparse side…but that’s intentional, of course.”
Putting this number up for now, because I have no idea when the plot thread will ground itself again tonight.
I don’t know why people want to slam NaNoWriMo. If nothing else, it teaches you that you can write over 1500 (or more) words a day and not kill yourself.
