Word Count: 7,940 (4)
Okay! Today was a catch up day. I wrote a little bit on Wednesday, but I didn’t record it, and I didn’t write at all yesterday. So today’s writing session was a sit down and catch up, which I did and apparently then some. I had forgotten about my words on Wednesday so I over-wrote the word count by a little bit, but that is okay because, wow, I’m only nine thousand seven hundred and fifty-one words away from finishing NaNoWriMo this year!
Writing felt really slow today for some reason. It took me five hours to write six thousand words, which was very slow compared to last Sunday. But still I pushed my way through. I’m looking to see about writing tomorrow with the intent of finishing up NaNoWriMo at the very least. We’ll see if that happens.

That is a very nice prime delta. I’m rather happy with that, even though I’m planning on writing tomorrow, it means I could skip tomorrow, but I’m not going to. Now that I’m within ten thousand words, it feels like I could knock this out really quickly as of tomorrow, which I really feel like doing because I’m kinda tired of NaNo taking up my time. Not offense, NaNo.
CinsAngel has taken the lead! You think 40,249 is nice? Try 42k+! Very impressive. chimera116, and Sithwitch13 are both still a few thousand words behind but I’m sure they’re just not updating their NaNo counts, rather like how I seem to be doing so every few days. I’m happy to report Mur Lafferty is still in the race, slowly adding words. As a professional author, blogger, and mother, I’ve no doubt every word written is a trophy in and of itself.
Novel Word Count: 165,970 (+7,940)
Outline Word Count: 36,648 (-14)
These last few scenes have been dull and even I know it. I had to fight the urge to re-write them but I did, because they’re obviously going to be scenes that get totally thrown out, but that meant I could have some fun in writing them. I explored Tigh’s character a little more, and expand Toppa as well. Carlos and Marla seemed to be the main movers and shakers of the plot at the moment which is fine, but I still feel a little unrealistic how Marla is pushing everything about, so I’ll ned to rethink that later. Overall I’m still happy with how quickly the writing is going with the outline, even if each scene is coming out sever so slightly different from the outline.
