Okay, I know the title is redundant, don’t get on my case about it.
Today is the fifteenth day of NaNoWriMo, the official half way point. By this day, people who are following the daily word requirement of 1,667 words, should have 25,000 words written.
I’m nearly to 50,000 already, and am I happy about that.
As I look at the past fifteen days, I see a story going from a basic structure with a timeline of events to novel full of rich color and life. It has been a blast so far, and I know that it will continue to be.
Now, when I reach the 50,000 mark, I won’t be stopping there, because I will be going until the novel is finished. That means that there will be more NaNoWriMo journal entries for you to read in the future. I may be close to 50,000, but there’s more story left to be written, and more goodies for me to share with my readers. I can’t wait for the next fifteen days!
Current word count for Deus Ex Machina: 46,031/50,000!
Until day 16,
Andrew Ronzino, A Man Who Doesn’t Get Distracted Very Ea…Oh Look, A New Book…
P.S. Today at my write-in, I reached into the “Jar of Awesome Horrors and Unnameable Kittens” (the jar that holds random challenges that people can do), and pulled out a challenge that I suggested for the Jar before NaNo began. It said, “In the scene you’re currently writing, it’s announced on TV, radio, word of mouth, or some other way, that Canada took over America, but no one seems to care”. I didn’t use it because I couldn’t fit it into my novel properly, but I thought it was funny that I picked up my own challenge.
