The Words: 4407 words total for the day.
Even though just yesterday I said I was going to stick to 2500 words per day for a while to avoid running out story before the end of the month, when I got to 2500 today, I realized I was just under 2000 words away from winning. So I did a few more sprints this evening with my daughter and hit 50k! Woohoo!
Tomorrow, I’ll give myself a little break and compensate for so many words today, by just doing one 10-minute sprint or something. Because I definitely have more to write!
The Story: I tried my hand at psychology today and showed some of the childhood of a character who grows up to be a surly, mediocre mercenary. Then we see him as an adult, having to answer for the actions of someone else. Poor guy can’t really catch a break, to be honest.
Total word count: 50,073
Enjoy today’s NaNoToon from this day in 2009!

Congratulations on 50k! That’s an interesting thing you’ve got going on for your character, too.

Thank you! I’ve always thought of this guy as simply a “bad guy,” but getting into his head for this story has rounded him out a lot more (as it always does).
