NaNo Day 15
By the calendar, all NaNo writers should at least be at the half way point (unless, of course, they plan to pull a few last minute all-nighters).
My official word count is now at 37,866, but I am definitely starting to struggle. Yesterday I barely made my 2,000 word goal. I did better today, writing over 4,000 words. But I'm afraid I'm starting to ramble a bit, adding fluff to my outline in an effort to churn out the number of words I need. I'm sorry to say I even considered having one of my characters read poetry to another. You know, something like the Canterbury Tales, for example. Just think of the word count I could get out of that! Or maybe one of my characters could start shouting things into a huge echoing cavern. HELLO...Hello...Hello...Hello...Hello.
H'mmm. Maybe not.
Anyway, despite all, I'm determined to keep moving forward, so I'll be back for another report in a few days.
Until then...Write on!
