I’m still struggling with Nano. I’ve introduced two new characters – I now have 3 pairs of main characters. Ideally I’d like to try and interleave chapters from the various pairs. At the moment, though, a lot of what I’m writing is out of order – just trying to get things down. Write, and get the word count up.
I’m catching up, a little wee bit. I am just under 5K behind at the moment, but I am working steadily and hope to catch up in a couple of days. And then, ideally, to overtake and finish early. I suspect that this will be a year where I want to get to 50K and then I will stop and go back to focusing on life a bit more – I’m already feeling guilty that I haven’t made a couple of tea cosies which I have sort of said I’ll make. I’m also a little concerned as I think my word count is counting dashes and dots ( – and … ) as words, which I don’t think ought to be what’s happening. And so I may get to what I think is 50K only to find that I have a couple thousand more words to write.
So. More interestingly, so far in my story I have:
– a multiverse, sort of
– a talking cat
– two sets of twins
– a wise old woman
and I plan to add:
– a magical tram
– a bear
– … anything else you guys can suggest! Really, I need help with this, if you have any ideas!
