NaNoWriMo 2012 #3

I had a sporadic but otherwise excellent writing day, and blew past my wordcount to finish the prologue. Because I could only work an hour here or there, I kept track of my time and wordcounts to see how much I was writing during each mini-session:

7-8 am: 160
8:30-9:30 am: 376
11 am-1:30pm: 1464
2:45-3:45 pm: 654
6-7 pm: 588

New words: 3242
Ms. total: 8170

Editing took another hour, and then I had to wrangle with my Adobe Acrobat, which decided to stop allowing me to print to PDF. Came up with a temporary solution by downloading the 30-day free trial of Acrobat XI, which reinstalled the print to PDF. I should really upgrade anyway (I was working from Acrobat 7) but at least this will get me through to the end of the month.

I enjoyed getting into Belle Chenault's backstory, although I may have to adjust the timeline as everything happens pretty fast with her. She's one of those characters like Reever, very hard to get into her head but worth the struggle. Since I've written past goal every day, tomorrow I'll probably knock out 800 words in the morning and use the rest of the day to recharge my batteries.
