Day 8 JaNo – 2291 words today, 17864 total
Shifted my focus closer to the villain of the novel today, which means a whole new set of characters and a setting in a different part of the world. I tried to focus on working in tendrils to the outside world, and while I don’t think I’m doing a good job of it, today’s words seem a bit better. Practice, practice, practice. Perhaps by the end it will read like an actual novel.
Update: In a rare (but short) burst of afternoon productivity, 184 more words, which brings the grand total up to 18048. I’m now a full day (2k) ahead on quota, which means if I need to skip a day, I can. (Yay!)
