Nano day 5

Did another 3139 words today for a grand total of

17675

My plot is starting to try to snake on me a bit, twisting out of what I had originally conceived.  The next chapter's gonna take some hard considering to do...I've gotten a glimmer of an idea, but thread one isn't really ready for what thread two is ready for...so I need to figure out something useful and will advance the plot, but won't be just filler...something to sleep on.

Wow, you're really trucking along. What's the goal for Nano? 50K? I'm sure you'll make it with time to spare. You're a far more prolific writer than I am.

Oh, the pitfalls of writing. The story take on a life of its own and you're just taken along for the ride. Fun and annoying. Funnoying.

50k

Last night, as I was laying down getting ready to fall asleep, I saw how to get to the climax, what the climax was and ending of the story in my head for the first time..(I sort of knew where it was going, but I saw how it'll get there) and even saw epilogue.

Often with longer stories I have trouble getting to the climax...

It's a bit easier for me to put out this type of volume, I suspect, than you...no kids to care for, a husband who is understand and retired and picks up the slack when I'm on a run like this...

But I never knew I could put out 3000 words of rough draft day after day. Heck, I always thought 1000 words was a heavy day of writing for me...Learning that has been a good lesson.

Maybe I'll do it next year. My plan for November was to finish the first editing pass, since I refuse to move on until this is finished. I'm like that. So far, so good, though. I'm up to chapter 12 and it's only the 6th.
