So I just made it to 50,000 words on my NaNoWriMo novel, Last Outpost. I’m on chapter 16 of 20, and I’ll probably spend a few more hours working on it tonight. Once I’m done with it, either tomorrow or the day after that, I will start revising it. And then I’ll start doing the character prompts for my second NaNo novel, From Under the Shadow. Yes, I’m doing two this year. Last year I did two because I suddenly had the idea for the second one after finishing the first one in a week. This year I just decided to assume that I’d be done early, and to plan accordingly.
S is moving right along at over 13,000 words, so Team Unicorn is doing very well this year. I will be helping her by typing up her book when I’m not working on my second one.
I suppose I should mention that I’m doing most of my writing on my new laptop, named Ellard, which is an HP Elitebook 850 G1. It’s got a solid state drive, so it’s very fast. The keyboard is great, though it’s very similar to the one in my last HP, so that’s hardly a surprise.
Oh, and for the record, my 50,000th word was “grisly.”
