Well, for those of us participating in this year’s National Novel Writers Month, we’ve reached the first week milestone. Sometime on Saturday, I wrote my 10,000th word–not quite as far along as I’d hoped, but steady.
Still working on the beginning chapters, getting to know the characters, their wonts and peculiarities. Over the next few weeks that will change. No doubt, at some point, one or more of them will start writing their own stories, but that’s okay, as long as they stick to the plan. As Shell will tell you, there’s nothing worse than a well-thought out plan that goes awry.
