NaNoWriMo Day #9

Slow getting back to work today after my two days off, but I wrote up about 5 pages of notes over the weekend for this week's sessions, and I thought a lot about what I want to do in the chapters I'll be writing. One reason I prefer to write at least something every day (notes don't count) is because I do have to work to get back my rhythm, like today.

After a couple hours of plodding through every word and really getting nothing on the page, I finally wrote through the downtime blues, knocked out one scene and started another before my sprint ended. I would have liked to have written more words today, but for most of the first session I didn't even think I was going to make quota, so I'll be happy with my 2511.

I came up with the names I'm going to use for my opposing forces in the story, and introduced them today in a logical spot, although I may move them up earlier to the catalyst scene. Not sure. More thinking to do on that. I'd like to sketch the hallmarks of both groups as interpreted symbols, maybe a loose interpretation of their names. I also need to work out a concrete warfare history timeline for this world before I end up citing nine hundred different skirmishes with only a vague idea of what order they happened in.

Today's Stats:

Wordcount: 2511
Total Wordcount: 18535
Pages: 12
Total Pages: 87
Time: 7:15 am - 12:30 pm
Sessions: 1 @ 2 hours 15 minutes with frequent/untimed breaks, then 3 @ 50 minutes with ten minute breaks every hour.
