A quick update on the progress of book five and my NaNoWriMo challenge. As you can see by the attached graphic, I’m struggling to stay caught up this time around. The last weekend was busy with a gaming party and travel. The travel produced a significant amount of fatigue which has taken me a day or so to recover from.
Now that I’m enjoying some warm weather in sunny Florida, I was able to get in a couple of good writing sessions. Some very exciting plot developments have occurred in Chapter 3 of Book Five. Even the author can be surprised once in a while when he discovers things he had not realized before. I think that is one of the joys of writing I love the most. I can have so much of the story planned out, but in the midst of writing it, I can will come across some facts or information that I had never considered or even realized where there until I had put them down on paper (digitally speaking of course).
I should be two-thirds of the way done today — 35k words — instead I’m just about three-fifths done. Thank you to my family for working with me through vacation and allowing me some extra time. Well, I am going to go have some fun with them right now. I will get back to writing this evening.
