The Words: 4274 on my Neo.
My family’s big Thanksgiving event was today, but I had time in the morning to write. I wrote 2500 before I had to stop to get ready to leave. Half of it was with a word crawl themed for Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, and the other half was with @NaNoWordSprints.
I took my Neo with me to where we were going for dinner, because after the meal, we always play lots of board games. I often watch as much as I play, so most years I get at least a few words in for NaNoWriMo.
Tonight, I did a few sprints with the aforementioned Twitter feed and decided to see if I could get 3000 for today, plus another 1200 to make up for getting less than my new goal yesterday.
The Story: Antios has sufficiently shown his new power to the king, and then vowed to show him exactly how useful it can be. The rest of that is played out in what I’ve already written.
Then I finally went back the the “present time” where this story started. Against my original outline, Lorrin and the king are interrupted before they have a chance to express their real feelings. The prince comes to talk to his dad about the enemy that has been spotted in the area, and how this would be a great place to start working toward peace between the nations.
The king promises to discuss it in the morning, but is too tired from traveling. So they turn in, but when the king checks on his son, he’s missing.
Total word count: 64,762
