The Words: 2718 written today. It’s the first day after I reached 50k, and it’s not a good sign of things to come. However, I pulled double writing duty today. On top of the writing I did for NaNoWriMo, I had a Skype meeting with my sisters (fifteenth meeting of the Tri-County Sisterhood of the Traveling Book), who are working with me to revise the novel I wrote last year. That was during my evening writing time, so I knew I wouldn’t get writing done during that time. So the rest of the writing happened in the afternoon, which I think was actually a pretty good amount.
The Story: The plot is flowing so fast now, I can’t get very far without having to check my outline. In fact, I tried talking out the story into Audacity while doing dishes again, but I kept having to run over to the computer to look at what was next, so I finally had to give up. Lex and Leahna encountered Rusalki, a dangerous woman who will actually become sort of the big bad of this story. There are no indications that she has anything to do with Lex’s dad’s death, or the dangerous steps Lex is taking to answer the questions surrounding his dad’s death. However, she definitely has a malicious intent, not just toward Lex and Leahna, but toward…everyone.
