So as of yesterday, I passed 30,000 words on my NaNoWriMo project. I’m well over the halfway point now, and the end is in sight. That’s the good news. The bad news? Well, I’ll hit 50,000 words, that’s for sure. However, I think a good chunk of those words at the end will be a list of problems that need to be addressed to fix the story.
Whatever, I’ll make the deadline, and I’ll know where to go with my next round of revisions. I keep telling myself that 50,000 words isn’t a novel anyway, so I shouldn’t be too upset, but I’m wrapping things up a little too quickly in my story. I’m a little upset that it’s more novella than novel. Ah well.
But, speaking of “next round[s]” and where to go next, I just wrote an article about this topic that will be going up shortly on Fantasy-Fiction. So if you’re wondering what to do come December 1, this should give you a few helpful suggestions. Keep an eye out for that.
