Well, I got a good chunk–2,500 words–written yesterday, and I haven’t given up on my NaNoWriMo project. In fact, finally it’s starting to get fun. My weakling, whiny main character just went through survival training and was faced with the realization that she would be alone for much of her trip across post-apocalyptic America. In the meantime, her ex-boyfriend has joined the other side and is currently using Coalition troops to scour the countryside in search of her. What’s ahead? St. Louis, where everyone is in for a big surprise.
I hope to get another good chunk done today, because we are off to Austin tomorrow to help my son and his family move into another apartment. So it will be Sunday evening earliest before I can write anymore. Right now, I stand at 26,000 words toward a total of 50,000.
Sometimes writing is drudgery. Sometimes it is fun. You suffer through the drudgery because you know–you hope–the fun is just around the corner.
Have a great day.
