In my first NaNoWriMo, a character who was supposed to be very minor took on a major role and then halfway or more through the book had a complete change of alignment that is resulting in rewriting the entire first half of the book. That novel is what will be Book Three of The Other Mages trilogy.
I am currently working on trying to finish Book Two, and a character who was supposed to be a minor annoyance has become a plot point. I’m not quite sure where that part of the plot is going yet, but then, I have the feeling that I’ve lost more than a few threads in this draft.
And the 16 hour shift that I worked on Saturday has helped neither word count nor coherence, and I am now 2795 words behind where I need to be for today. And I’m sure tomorrow’s number will be worse – at least, before I start writing it will be.
Speaking of writing… Off I go.
