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: As the king feared, the base that Lorrin is at was indeed attacked from within by the people who they had captured. It was a joint attack with Antios’s men. By the time the king arrived, fearing the worst, the base commander had been captured, presumed dead, and taken into Antios’s fort. Lorrin and a few other soldiers have snuck into the base to try to get the commander back, though they are currently listed as simply missing.

The king has taken command of the base and is planning a mission to rescue their missing men.

Total word count: 36,045
