Words/Time: 2770 words revising “Pithea” with two of my sisters over Skype. Also known as the 56th meeting of the Tri-County Sisterhood of the Traveling Book. We got through just over 9 pages of double-spaced text. There was a lot of off-topic discussion tonight, probably about an hour and a half. There is often at least some off-topic discussion during our meetings, and I don’t normally quantify it, but it was a lot tonight, and not all at the beginning like usually when it’s a lot. There were also some characterization issues, and some problems with logistics related to relative location of characters during a long walk. They’re mostly sorted.
I’ve been spending a lot of time trying to help people figure out how to participate in NaNoWriMo, but I haven’t explained why you should.
I’ve seen several posts like this lately, so rather than write my own, I thought I’d share one that pretty much sums up my thoughts too.
