I had an interesting morning with Brand and Deuce respectively. I was tempted to back-read both scenes but I think I'll wait until tonight and let the internal editor have the first look.

NaNoWriMo 2012 #21

I started off the first writing session after my mini-vacation by deleting my beginning of Chapter Eight (about 488 words) and rewriting it. I just didn't care for how I'd opened the scene, and wanted to run through it again from scratch. I still didn't like it after the second attempt but that happens and I'll mark it for another rewrite once I've finished the book.

New Words: 2143
New Manuscript Total: 40,146

First Draft

Edited brings my totals up to 2255 for the day and 40,258 for the manuscript total.

NaNoWriMo 2012 #20

I got my words done in three short sessions while juggling other tasks. Kim and Glory surprised me with an unexpected heart-to-heart that bloomed out of nowhere at the end of Chapter Seven, and I got a little of Chapter Eight going before I quit for the day.

New Words: 2011
New Manuscript Total: 37,766

First Draft

Added: The Edited version brings my totals up to 2248 for the day's total and 38,003 for the manuscript total. I will be taking off the next four days now to spend time with my family and enjoy the holiday weekend, but if I manage to get some writing in I'll update when I can.

I had fun with the writing today, and I think it came through on the page. I was tempted to try for double my quota but I don't want to push the voice too hard just yet. I'll also need it tonight for the daily edits.

New Words: 3,132
New Manuscript Total: 35,608
First Draft

Added: Got today's work Edited, which brings my totals up to 3,279 new words and 35,755 manuscript total.
