Impossible to know where I am with the story… maybe half-way, but hopefully 2/3 of the way…. I made it to 40,000 today, and am hoping for 60ish by the end of next weekend. And am hoping that leaves me with a full first draft, so I can do some holiday baking.
It definitely has it’s own momentum, and is a lot of fun to write.
The “Inner Editor” problem is really more of an issue now than before, though. Typos I can live with, but now that I have a much better idea of how the story will wrap up, I am so tempted to read through what I have and make it all line up with that…. Instead I’m just keeping a separate file of notes so I don’t forget what I had in mind for Draft 2.
Also, I’m starting to get more and more haunted by the other idea I had in mind for Nano. I didn’t pick that one because it seemed to silly, but I keep thinking about ways to make it strong. Once the creative juices start flowing, it becomes a flood pretty quickly!
