So, we’re twelve days into NaNoWriMo and things are going okay…ish.
Last week, once I got over my insecurities, I found that things went well. I kept up with my daily targets, even going over on a few days. I feel like I’ve really settled in to the story and any worries I may have had about pursuing the thriller route have vanished. I think I’ve gotten a real feel for my characters and the story is coming along nicely. It turns out that I have quite a twisted mind, when I think of it.
This story calls for more research than most other stories have. I’m researching as I go along and rather than slow me down, it makes me more enthusiastic about writing. My only worry is someone ever going through my Google history. Who knows what they would make of my searches for strip clubs, guns, poisons and human trafficking.
An interesting side effect of NaNo, is that it’s making me organised in other areas of my life. Because I know I have so much to do, I’m more conscious of how I spend my time which is in turn, making everyday things run smoothly. I’ve even managed to get a week in front with my latest OU module. Interesting.
I have slipped a little behind over the weekend, with a full day of family commitments on Saturday and a migraine taking over Sunday, but I’m confident that I’ll catch up.
Ask me again in a week.
