#NaNoWriMo, Day 4

Another excellent day of NaNoWriMo! I still have no idea where this story is going in the short term, but once I get started with a scene, I seem to just get onto a roll. This book seems to be a lot more dialog and less action than I was expecting. That may change as I get into things more, but once my characters start talking, the dialog just seems to flow. Well, except for Peggy, but she’s a bit of a chatterbox, and I figure that I’ll flesh out some of her blatherings in the next draft.

But let’s start off with the good news. I had a great word count today, racking up 2465 words today. That put me over my personal word count and help me catch up a chunk of words that I missed on the 2nd. I’m now ahead of the curve for the whole 50,000 and just about 300 words shy of where I would be writing 2000 words a day. I could have pressed on for it, but I don’t want to burn out early. I’m good with making some regular progress.
