NaNoWriMo, Day 4 is now behind me…
Also behind me is another 1831 words. Marking a grand total (as of Day 5’s start) at: 4,262 words in 4 days.
As I intimated previously, last night’s effort would be focused on a different character. This worked well to get me started, but things soon swung back to the initial character’s focus. A scene even began to build out unexpectedly and led me down a path I hadn’t planned on. While I am happy I got so much out of that attempt, I am a bit annoyed that I wasn’t able to build the character more, but I guess that’s how this game goes, eh? Just let it take you where it will and don’t worry about what you, as the writer, desires the story to be.
So, tonight I feel may be a bit more difficult. I am tired from a late elections night and a decided lack of sleep. Not to mention all the actual work getting in my way of catching up on sleep during the day 😉 . Additionally, I feel a need to totally redo what I wrote last night. A feeling which I am fighting, but one that will make it more difficult tonight. Perhaps if I just step back and work on building that second character again, things will come out in a different way, but in a way that will still build on what came out yesterday. Still, the drive to build the character is there, so I should be able to pull out another 1600 in an hour or two tonight again.
