NaNoWriMo Day 11

The Words: 3072 written on my Neo.

I wrote about 1400 in the afternoon alongside my 8-year-old daughter, who was creating things like a cell phone and a laptop out of paper. (Earlier this month, she made me a pencil, a notebook, and a word sprint timer out of paper.) After she made the laptop, she joined me for a 14-minute sprint (pretending to type on said laptop). She has pretended to sprint 3 times in the last 2 days. Each time, I ask her how many words she got before telling her mine, and each time, she picks a number within 50 of what I got, without knowing what I got. Twice now she has beaten me!

After she went to bed, I got the rest of the words during a sprint alongside @NaNoWordSprints on Twitter, and then one final sprint on my own to try to break 3000.

The Story: The king has evidence that the Groucans are working with Antios and tries to warn his people on the front lines before it’s too late. But a devastating outcome is unavoidable, and someone important is taken captive.

Total word count: 36,045
