Time for Words

680 words to go before I reach today’s goal. The evenings here have proven to be of no use for writing. As a result I’ll have to stay up late tonight and get those 680 words out before midnight. I managed to get 987 words completed this morning though! Somehow my novel continues to grow with lots of action and plot.

Macon, my main character, has experienced some of life’s tragic moments and therefore a transformation is currently taking place. His anger serves to mask his pain. He got to Calvin, that lying little snitch bitch, and beat the crap out of him! Sorry for the vulgarity here, it fits the novel. Anyway a little leak of information on the true happenings behind Macon’s back has been revealed to the readers. But just a little.

I’ll have some extra time this weekend to work on my novel. At least that’s the plan! I hope to get ahead of the game in effort to finish before the Novemeber 29 date of completion that the NaNoWriMo website has projected for me. With busy evening schedules around here I haven’t been able to attend any write in’s scheduled so far this month. Feel as though I’m missing out, but if I’m to finish this novel by the deadline and still keep my family, you get it.

I wonder, this is only the second week, but I feel as though it’s been a long time. My story has surpassed real time and months have gone by inside my novel. So I’m feeling months older! I imagine many other writers particpating in November’s challenge feel similar.  A lot happens in nearly 16000 words. So where has real time gone? Am I missing it? November’s madness lurking between what I believe is “real” time and my novel’s timeline, or timezone, or something like that.

Blogging My First Novel, one post at a time

My dream is to become a professional bullshit artist. Or, as others prefer to call them, a novelist. I know, a highly unoriginal and unattainable goal. What's my back-up plan? Ninja fairy. Here's to being disgustingly unoriginal!
