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

15 November 2017

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!

23,625 words written

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!

253 words over target

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

Tracking below goal

See you tomorrow!
