NaNoWriMo Day #4

I slugged it out with my second protagonist today, and it wasn't pretty. I put the novel aside and went for a long walk, did some cleaning and ran some errands while I thought about him and what was getting in my way with writing him. I decided it was the contrast with the first protagonist, plus my own indecision about how much of his situation I wanted to get into in these beginning chapters.

When I sat down tonight I dumped the three pages I wrote yesterday and started the chapter over from scratch, and somewhere around 11:00 pm I felt like I finally got into his head. I didn't produce much in the way of wordcount, but I think I made great strides in getting my head and his aligned.

Today's Stats:
Wordcount: 724
Pages: 3
Time: 6:30am-7:00am, 10:00pm-11:30pm
Sessions: 1 @ 30 minutes; 1 @ 1 hour 30 minutes
