Like the 80’s band ‘Europe’ sang, it’s the final countdown.
Many of the talented writers participating in this year’s NaNoWriMo challenge have already finished and claimed their win. I feel a swell of pride for them.
Borrowing an idiom: I am SO close I can taste it! Today I wrote a great chunk of words. My characters are finally behaving and working together, (although the tension between them makes for delightful moments of conflict too) and they’ve arrived in a new galaxy. This makes it easy to pour out words, describing what they are seeing and doing in the story.
After finishing writing today, I have 48,011 words.
