I am falling behind. Today (Monday) I didn’t get much written for NaNoWriMo so I’m not up to where I should be by this time. I did write over 1000 words tonight but that’s not enough yet. I have a lot of catching up to do with Tuesday’s goal in the challenge being a total of 15,000 words. But the fun thing is that my widget says I have completed 24% now.
What’s interesting is that what I wrote tonight is a departure from the main story. My characters are taking me on a detour, and yet it feels as if there is a connection to the heart of the story. It is all still vague in my mind right now but I think it’s going to come together okay somehow. I will just keep writing and see what happens.
The really good news is that this morning I had two ideas for PiBoIdMo. In fact, one of them is built onto the idea I had for Day 2. It seems that now I have a full story roughed out for a picture book. Cool, huh? Well, I think so.
I’m having fun with all this writing.
When you write, do you find that your characters lead you?
Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings! 🙂
