Day Eight and Nine, NaNoWriMo 08

Day Nine
Word Count: 2990 for a total of 23670
Today picked up a bit. I switched gears and went back to our ranty daemon antagonist, Inca. Sort of told the story about how he got knocked down to our plane of existence, what happened when he arrived and what his motivations are. This was a heck of a lot more fun to write than exposition (even though it had quite a lot of narrative involved) and I can actually say that today I am proud of some of the passages I’ve written. We’ll see what tomorrow holds as I cross the 25000 line.

Day Eight
Word Count: 3000 for a total of 20680
Today didn’t quite have our heroine tearing apart Vault 102 to get to the necklace. I did have her meander and find it in the back, though. We get to learn a bit more about the Order of the Sacred Word in this section and I got Autumn safely home to her hungry cat and a warm bed. Despite the fact that today gave me the BIGGEST word count of the year, I was not at all happy with doing this by hand. Four hours a day is a lot to devote to draft writing. Part of me wishes I could put that into my already completed manuscript and get it shaped up for publication somewhere.
