Writer’s Life: NaNo Update

Posted by Nicky Drayden on Nov 19, 2010 in Writer's Life |

Just a quick update: I survived week two and am over the 25,000-word hump. It’s all downhill from here, right? It’s been a pretty smooth ride so far, though right now I’m a day behind schedule. And I’m starting to realize that this novel will end up closer to 100k if my chapters keep being as long as they’ve been.

The plot is still hazy, and I ended up killing off a character since the novel was starting to feel like a previous one I’d written. That did the trick, and I somehow have a motley crew running for their lives, with lots of angsty drama in space. Spangst? Is that a word?
