Somewhere in the neighborhood of 42K. I’m shooting for 6800 words today/night/morning and probably another block of the same later today. I’ve been using #NaNoWordsprints on Twitter to help me along. Turns out I can easily knock out 1200 words in 30 minutes!
I was beginning to despair that my story was kind of boring. Not in these last few chapters! All kinds of murder, mayhem- even rumors of an impalement! Next up: the Big Battle and its aftermath.
In the end, this will amount to a very detailed outline. So far, I’m adhering very closely to actual history, which I didn’t actually want to do. So, once I’ve figured out this whole plot, I’ll spend the next few months letting my imagination run wild.
Back to work!
