NaNoWriMo Day #3

My late start today was due to the time I spent this morning notifying a bunch of colleagues about pirated books of theirs I found on a site that had also bootlegged mine. The jackass responsible for distributing illegal copies of my books had also posted pirated copies of 1000+ titles by other authors, so I felt I had to do something about it. Fortunately I was able to cut-and-paste most of the e-mails involved or I would have run out of voice in a hurry.

Getting to work late made me grumpy, but the scene I worked on was interesting enough to dispel my bad mood. I introduced two support characters who were fun to write, and got a nice flow on the dialogue. Another week with this story and I should be able to start thinking in this new voice. For now it's still a little too new. Trying on new genres and voices is like breaking in a pair of new shoes, you really have to wear them every day to work out the stiffness.

I went over my quota again because I'd like to buy the weekend off to go to a play and a fair with the kids. I need an extra 4K by Friday to take a two-day break and I'm about a third of the way there. Pretty sure I can do it. Tomorrow I'll wrap up Chapter Two and get started on Chapter Three. Looking forward to the next scene, in which both the antagonist and the love interest make an appearance.
