Well, it’s day 5 of NaNoWriMo 2016, and I am stunned at my progress. I’m at nearly 13,000 words, which is pretty far ahead of where I’m supposed to be at this point. It happened because of a new story idea that happened and basically wrote itself. This story is nearly 9,000 words all on its own.
It’s not perfect and needs heavy editing, but I love the premise of the story and the way it plays out. I just love it to bits.
But I’m a little afraid (okay a lot afraid) that I won’t be able to keep up this pace now that this story is finished. The rest were going along fairly well, but none of them have that sense of frantic inspiration as “Elegy for Elena.”
I’ve also been working on my Cognitive Psych paper as part of NaNo. That’s going pretty well, too.
