Well, my word count is at 40,000 words now with ten days to go! It’s been an interesting two-and-a-half weeks trying to rush through a novel like this, and the words are not always pretty. I got stuck with stretching the story out when I hit the 23,000 mark, most likely due to an early burn out. After several days of watching my cursor blink at me tauntingly, I resorted to studying the different time travel theories and added them in the scene where my antagonist describes how it works to my protagonist.
I’m not sure how this story will read once I begin editing it, so for now I’ll enjoy seeing my current word count and worry about polishing it later.
How is your NaNo novel going? Do you have any tips you want to share with me?
