Four More Days

Only four more days left of NaNoWriMo (counting today) and I’m working all of them.

I have 11,000 words to go as of this writing, and need 2768 words per day to finish on time.

I think I can make it, but sleep may cease to be a thing I do.   Food may also become an unnecessary waste of time.

At least the story is rolling better now, although I do find myself skipping sections and leaving myself notes to fill it in later.  Some of it is legitimate – I have no idea how much of Cara’s training to show so I’m writing and making notes about what to do with that in revisions.

I also need to show her starting to get to know some people.  Maybe.  I’m not quite sure how to handle that, so I skipped it. I can go back and put them in later.

Right now the focus needs to be on rolling the story forward.  I know I’m not going to wrap it up by the end of the month (and next month I’m back to focusing on Book 6 of The Academy of the Accord so I can start the edits and revisions of the series in January) but I do want to be more into the thick of the action than I am now.

Yeah. I’m almost 40k into the story and not into the thick of the action.  There’s going to be a lot of stuffed cut when I get to the revisions.

But right now I just have four more days…
