poet, writing

another day, and yet more text.

Slowly getting somewhere. Not quite 4k today, but close enough that I feel like I'm back on track, even if I'm technically behind on wordcount. In some ways, this story wants to be told, and that feels good. The character who I thought I was going to kill off isn't technically dead yet, but I might get to that before the close of the chapter. there's still a lot to do yet.

It might not be suck. I'll give it that. But at times, I still wonder if I'm writing suck. :) It's Nano! Embrace the suck!

(this should have been posted last night, grr.)

not my usual pace, but I'm getting there.

I'm about 1420 words off the minimum pace to make fifty thousand, and tomorrow, I need to be around 16,660 to be at minimum pace. Which means attempting to produce 3086 words. At the pace I've been keeping, that should be doable. Even with a short day today, I think I still got in two thousand, which isn't too bad.

And I killed off my first character. I'm not entirely sure if he'll be the last, though. I'm getting into the part of the story where I'm not quite sure what happens yet, but I'm sure the characters will figure it out and tell me. Besides, I've got a couple loops to throw at them.

More later. And remember, if you're masochistic and want to read the suck, it's at katsterwrites. Comment and I'll friend you with that journal so you can read it.
