NaNoWriMo 2017 :: Day 15/30 :: 23,625 words

Not a bad evening! Not a great one, but not bad either!

I’ve spent the last few days stumbling through the latter half of the second act, which I ran out to time to outline during Preptober.

Basically, by the end of Preptober, my notes for the third quarter of the second act were something like:

SCENES 31-33: Under attack

Esthree, Bolide and Hurrible are under attack by dragons.

They must hide, outwit the pilots, then steal a dragon and escape.

3,000 words.

After a few days of brainstorming, I thankfully had a breakthrough! I figured out how our heroes can escape the villainous dragon riders seeking vengeance for the humiliated Adminwizard Gaap!

So, I’ve been able to get my head down and blast through a couple of thousand words, and I’m wrapping up today at 23,625 words!

Since we’re half-way through the month, I need to be at 25,000 words today to be on-target.

Obviously, I ain’t.

But, I am 253 words over my target for today!

The plan for tomorrow is to keep going! I’ve got to get that green line back over the red.
