NaNoWriMo Update: Final Stretch

NaNoWriMo 2014-11-25

Alright, so this is more like an ending update vs. a week three update. But week three was good, anyway! There was a moment in the beginning where I was just skirting the line and I was afraid I was going to duck below it, but I managed to boost myself back up and keep going.

Now I’ve got 5k words left to write to hit the 50k mark.

Aaaaand I’m rather running out of plotline idea. But! It should be fine because I tend to make those dialogue sections pretty long, and you always find bits of new stuff to talk about when you actually sit down to write. Right? Right?

I’m thinking that this is about the middle mark of this book. There’s been a big new change, new conflict, some resolution, lots of fun exciting stuff yay. I think this is a great place where NaNoWriMo stops because I need to do some serious brain storming to figure out where the book is going to go from here.

Plus, I’ve been itching to get back to my other novel, finish it, and continue onto the second, which has been rattling around in my head. I hope that this whole challenge isn’t proving that I have an A.D.D. brain that can’t focus on one book for too long without hating it. Hmm.

I’m also realizing that while short sentences are punchy and fun, they can get boring when too many of them are strung together. But this character has really to the point thoughts about things. Not sure what to do about that.

Moving on! Must get back to things. And find something to fix this headache I’ve got brewing. Ohhhh computer screen how I love thee…

About R. K. Brainerd

I've been writing since my pre-teens, mostly in the realm of fantasy and sci-fi. My characters are pretty much always clamoring for attention, and if I don't listen, they plague me with insane dreams and nightmares until I start writing. I also raise dairy goats, the evidence of which can be found on my Instagram. My debut novel -- an alternate-history fantasy -- it set to come out in 2018, probably Fall time. Welcome to the adventure. View all posts by R. K. Brainerd
