#NaNoWriMo 2013: 9 Days left
We are rounding the final turn of NaNoWriMo. This will be our last full weekend of writing. Next week we have the opportunity to start verifying our word counts and, for those that have 50k+ words, get the winner’s badge. I can feel the excitement building, if only my story had the same feeling.
My story is moving along, a bit slower than I would like. I feel like I am walking through a swamp. Each step forward is taking more and more effort, but I refuse to give in. My story is a fantasy story with swords, kings and treachery. I know how I want it to end, I know what battles will need to be fought, I am just having trouble getting the players in place to fight those battles.
I feel like the time frame is unrealistic. The geography doesn’t add up and people appear in one place while they should be somewhere else. I so very badly want to site down and organize the story so that I know where everyone is and when they were there. Then figure out how long it would take for them to travel so that things happen in each locations simultaneously. But that would take a lot of time and I still have tens of thousands of words to write.
So I am going to continue forward toward that finish line, hoping I don’t leave too big of a mess behind me and that I can clean it up later. Someone please tell me the clean up is as much fun as making the mess?
Until next time…
