I drove my parents to Sonora yesterday, loaded a truck full of their stuff, and then drove home. Long day. Then I watched Cal lose to USC and wrote 3,000 words to get caught up with NaNoWriMo. Geez! What a day.
The good news is, I worked out a bunch of things that have been in flux about the universe & setting of my novel on the drive home, so that was productive time. But even though I’m more than 10,000 words in, I’m definitely not even to the core of the book yet. Still, I’m getting close now. Last night I introduced another character that I think will become one of the core six main characters. So that’s two introduced. Good for me.
Still, it’s a struggle sometimes. But that’s why I like NaNoWriMo — if it was easy it wouldn’t be worth doing.
