NaNoWriMo 2016 - November 6

Got in some good writing today. Finished one chapter and started in on another. Leading up to the moment when one of the protagonists actually interacts with one of the antagonists. It should be a bit of fun to write. The protagonist is a curious rogue character. The antagonist she chooses to meet with is a cynical, bitter rogue character, who pretty much hates everyone. It should make for some entertaining conversation to write.

I'm nearing the end of Act One here. The middle act is going to be the main journey/adventure portion of the story. I'm looking forward to seeing how my characters deal with each other and the perils in store for them.

Here are the stats for the day.

Good pacing. You seem to be enjoying yourself, too, which is great. Misanthropes can be fun characters.

This year – other than blogs – I’ve churned out a few short stories, but nothing more. I’ve been fairly content this year, and perhaps that’s the issue. My most productive years (for writing that is) were in the immediate stunned aftermath of the worst years of my life. I’d rather not find inspiration the same way again.

Yeah so far the writing experience has been pretty good. I'm curious how it will all read once I complete the first draft, but the creation of the story is a blast.

Ugh, yeah that kind of inspiration we all try to do without. I do wonder if stress creates better writing or if it harms it. Sometimes putting myself into a solid deadline for nanowrimo feels like it makes me more productive on the writing front.
