Word count: 4467 (Yes, I had a major brain wave today!)
Projects: All of the Echoes, a short story companion to Havoc’s Moon
Goals achieved/notes: I’m happy but I can’t make any coherent words to describe why. I haven’t had this good a day, meaning, all the words are good (for a first draft) and none of them were “I don’t know what to write, I don’t know what to write,” written over and over again.
I hope y’all had a great day too!

KEEP WRITING 🙂

Projects: Havoc’s Moon, The Morning Star
Goals achieved/notes: So I haven’t had much luck with re-naming my characters but I have had some and some is better than nothing. My main character’s love interest in Havoc’s Moon has gone nameless since January of this year. He likes going by his last name but I’m the author and I need to know his first name because reasons. I took a lot of notes today for Havoc’s Moon, mostly about weaponry. It’s a paranormal action/adventure first and a romance second so I feel it’s very important I get the guns and artillery right.
For The Morning Star I think my main character is going to have some sort of psychotic break. I’m not sure. Even though I’m writing The Morning Star in 3rd person I free-wrote some of Echo’s thoughts in first person in the hopes that I can use them in the audio transcripts that are intermingled with the prose chapters.

Holy shit I’ve never met my word count on Day 1!
Project: Havoc’s Moon
Today’s goals: Find new names for characters, give said characters a new backstory, develop more of the society. I did NONE OF THESE. What I did do was build more of a relationship between my protagonist and her “pet.”
I got the bulk of my word count today by listening to one of Nanowrimo’s write ins on YouTube. I don’t like watching them live because I never tune in at the beginning. I am physically and mentally incapable of being punctual for a live stream. So I like watching write ins from the archives.
How’d y’all do?
