NaNoWriMo Day #20

My work & family schedules were pretty tight today, so I did one extended writing session this morning versus the usual two. I thought I'd try to work in another this afternoon, but an emergency job came in so that didn't happen.

Story-lengthwise I've hit the middle of the novel, and sticking faithfully to the outline so the running threads don't thin or start sagging. Two of the minor characters performed according to spec, but a third decided to get mouthy on the page and I've marked that scene for a complete rewrite once the novel is finished.

Things are rolling along pretty well, I think. Once I hit the 50K mark I'll begin the conflict transition from building to resolving. That's when the intensity will be the thing I have to watch -- like Jenga, exciting to play with but easy to cause to collapse.
