Things are coming along. Of course, the month is still young and there is plenty more work to do. I’m still in an editing stage, but I’ve still gotten quite a bit done.
I’m sure to some it looks like I’m just flying with this challenge – but that’s only if you’re looking at total word count and comparing it to the 50(k) goal. Keep in mind : I had a good 70 pages when I started this Unofficial NaNoWriMo. So a good chunk of my month is going to be editing those and adding to them.
For now, I’ll admit that editing is light. I tried writing this story a few different ways before I settled on its current format, so right now my focus is ensuring that everything is consistent. If I get an idea to expand a paragraph / scene, then I’m expanding it. Likewise, if I decide to switch up a scene or two, I’m doing it.
My goal is to have a cohesive, final draft. I’m keeping the 50(k) word goal in mind just to know where I’m at in terms of, “Is it officially a novel yet?” I know this is going to be much longer than that. But, it’s still good to see where I’m at. Especially since the goal of NaNoWriMo is that 50,000 word base.
