NaNoWriMo Day 16

I’ve been sporadic about writing this past week, and I’m about 3,800 words behind schedule, but I’m making up ground. I’m running into plot cul-de-sacs. When I had trouble coming up with something to write tonight, I had my main character receive letters from his siblings. Those were good for about 700 words, but more importantly, it kicked my brain into gear.

I think I’ll come out of this with something worth revising, but it will need major reconstructive surgery.

Anyway, the stats:

Today’s word count: 2,314

Total word count to date: 22,836



  1. Just a note to give you some encouragement. Stick at it. It is still very doable. Best wishes.
