Word count: somewhere in the 2,000’s
Sorry, this is going to be a quick post, but I’m slammed with school work today. Just to update: I’ve gotten a better handle on how I’m going to be writing the rest of my novel after all of the planning yesterday and am starting to put this into action. Tomorrow I’m going to have a writing marathon to make up for the lack of progress I’ve been making this week.
Why did NaNoWriMo have to start on a Tuesday?
Anyway, I’m hoping to get a little over ten thousand by the end of my writing marathon, and I have a few other marathons planned throughout the month. I was originally planning to shoot for 100k words like I did last year, but I think that’s too much pressure to try and put on this one idea and on myself, so I’m going to go for 50k and then see what happens from there.
So here’s something I’ve been doing with my characters now that I’m getting into their minds more: I’ve been trying to make them a little less boring, and a little more unique. This is important to one of the major themes of my story, so it helps with that as well as realism. My challenge for you is to try and do the same. Here are some ideas:
As always, good luck! Thanks for reading and don’t stop writing!
(Also, check back this weekend… I’m considering blogging every day this month instead of just weekdays)
