Week one of NaNoWriMo has been most victorious. I only took one day off. I've met 99.9 percent of my own personal goals. I am at 31,328 words. That's 1/3 of the projected 90k. I'm really enjoying my story. I do worry the hero is coming in too late, but there's enough going on that I think it's ok. I feel bad for my completely clueless character, who has no idea she is living in a murder-death-kill house. Shhhh! Don't tell her.
I'm starting to stress myself because I still haven't written queries for the 3 novels I am hoping to start subbing come first of the year. So yeah. There's that.
Now - to keep the fire stoked and the course plotted! This next week has its challenges as I have some romance to sprinkle in. And I haven't tied in how the romance dips and valleys while the haunting and the shenaniganry heat up. Romance is always a tricky thing. But one thing is for sure. It doesn't write itself.
