NaNoWriMo Day 2

Wordcount: 4950 (as of 2:51 P.M.)
Words Written Today: 908
Words I Need to Write Today: At least 1092

So, I didn't post an update yesterday. Sorry about that. In my defense, it was the first day. Also, I wrote 4,092 words. Since I'd doubled up on schoolwork beforehand, I spent most of the day either writing or on the computer. The one exception was when I went to Bible Study in the evening. I planned to spend today in pretty much the same way, but so far, I've been on the computer more than I've written. Procrastination strikes again! But I did write some, and I have all the rest of today to write more.

Wordcount aside, I discovered yesterday that I have a few problems with one of my main POV characters, Jake Alyron. I know his base personality and his past, but I've been having issues with how his past would affect the way he acts now. It's doubly aggravating because I roleplayed with him for at least a year, if not longer, without even considering this issue. Gah. I've asked a few friends and they gave me some fairly helpful advice, so hopefully I'll get this worked out before too long. Other than that, though, pretty much everything is going great.

Time for me to get back to writing!


  1. You're doing great, and I wish I could say the same for myself. 11:12 PM, and I still have a thousand words to write.


  2. Argh, I'm at 1,052. Serves me right for pantsing absolutely everything about my novel. I came up with my main character on day two.


I'd love to hear your thoughts! But remember: it pays to be polite to dragons.
