So I have to wonder: am I still really doing NaNo or am I just writing like I always do? This story I’m writing has really captured my imagination even though I’m not entirely certain what it’s about. Of course, that’s how most of my books begin. The last manuscript I completed began life as a haunted house story, morphed into a murder mystery, then into a murder mystery on a space station, before finally becoming a strange little book about aliens and alienation and suicide and the end of the world. Most everything I write begins its life as something else. I have no idea what this book is going to end up as, but it’s beginnings are keeping me interested, so that’s always a plus.
I missed posting some word counts, so here they are:
Day 6: 2933
Day 7: 1881
Day 8: 2080
Day 9: 2996
So far, my average words per day are 2335.
