Jeez, it is Day 8 of NaNo Novel Time? Oh, man. This is one of those days when I can’t seem to get my head in the game. Yes, I wrote a chapter; yes, I finished it; yes, I did 1655 words so far–
But I feel lazy as hell.
I’m still aiming for 30,000 total, and I’m only about 1400 away from that, so I’m going to launch into the next chapter and go for it. Two chapters in a couple of days is pretty good, so I shouldn’t feel bad . . ..
But I’m so crazy about getting this done.
I’m really at what I think is going to be the “true” middle of the novel. It’s going to be in the mid-30’s, but it’s really all about how long these chapters go. I think the middle chapters will be short, thought this next one might be a bit long because it’s all back story on the main character, so to speak. Or not. We’ll see how it goes.
But my brain hurts. It really does. I’m getting into these characters and I’m bringing them to life–but at the same time, it’s a lot of work. It makes me hurt thinking about where to go. What to dream up.
And how to say it.
Ah, the hell with it. I’ll get it, right?
