I'm at 319,595 words, or 17,717 words into November, when the NaNoWriMo target is 18,333. That means I'm 616 words behind, having written 2043 words today and cut down my lag by more than a third. Whoo.

Chapter 68 has been fairly smooth sailing. Some transitional material, some of which may end up being cut if I decide the flow works without it, but it has both Sparky and Carl in it, which has been making a lot of it write itself. I've been in a really good writing mood today and yesterday, probably partly because of the prospect of Sparky and Carl. Unfortunately, though that would be lovely, it's not so much in the sense of managing to write for very long uninterrupted (though I did manage quite a bit in one session just earlier, I also managed to waste a couple of hours rereading the entirety of chapters 1-3 of Unsounded - highly recommended, by the way - because the PDF version of the print edition that I backed on Kickstarter just came out). But it's a really good writing mood in the sense that I feel like my output for these days has some reasonably non-terrible bits (well, non-terrible for me, at any rate) and they flow pretty naturally given I am writing, as opposed to the slogging, tortuous 'just shut up and write some words that say something like what's happening' thing my NaNo experience otherwise consists of.

Granted, this did come at the cost of going to sleep ridiculously late again. But at least unlike some of the previous days here I wasn't actually that tired, instead of staying up watching my sanity slip and my eyes dry into dust as I tried to type something coherent.

Yay, more Sparky! I always loved him. Hope you get back ahead. I know you can do it!



Still waiting desperately for the next chapter.
