NaNoWrimo, Day 20: today is a Bye day.

I may not be even awake for much longer.  Having a kid in surgery took a lot out of me.  Not as much as it took out of my kid, but I’m stressed and tired and stressed and tired.

I’ll make it up over the next few days.

NaNoWriMo, Day 19: 1685/31915.

1,685/31,915

Today we got to meet a police captain!  And a couple of hookers!  You don’t have to have hookers in your detective pulp story, but it doesn’t hurt.

PS: I don’t know when the writing schedule will be disrupted by Thanksgiving, but it’s coming.  Particularly because a minor family medical issue requires us to split the party for Thanksgiving itself, with me at home with one of the kids.  But everything will be fine and this is all a self-imposed deadline anyway.

NanoWrimo, Day 18: 1697/30230

1,697/30,230.

I almost decided to include the several hundred words I put together to actually tie down the plot in today’s total.  But then the exorcism went well.  So I didn’t have to.

Dang thing’s sort of 60% done.  Doesn’t feel like it, but we’re getting there.

NaNoWriMo, Day 17: 1700/28533.

1,700/28,533.

Went well today, once I realized that it had been a while since anybody tried to kill our hero.  Resolving that allowed me to bring in all the demonological stuff again, which was nice.  Also to introduce an unpleasant character who will still be useful later.  I might kill him off, though.  Still deciding.

NaNoWriMo, Day 16: 1368/26833.

1,368/26,833.

Three and a half hours sleep last night.  It’s a miracle that I can focus.  Chapter 6 is well begun, however.

PS: I am still ahead of my target numbers, mind you.  This is why buffers exist.

NaNoWriMo, Day 15: 1768/25465

1,768/25,465

Danged if I wasn’t pleased to get a mysterious reveal out and on the screen.  Right after I realized what the mysterious reveal had to be.  The ending of this book is gonna be somewhat different than the ending to the short story, let me tell you.  Which is good, not that the original ending was bad; it’s just not what I need here.

NaNoWriMo, Day 14: 1602/23697

1,602/23,697

A little under daily count, but I’m still a bit ahead of schedule because of earlier days.  And I had run out of bits that had to be put in there.  So there you go.

NaNoWriMo, Day 13: 2015/22095

2,015/22,095

I… have discovered a stratagem.  A ploy, if you like.  I am plotting out the next bit using a particular suggestion, and the fact that I could speed along and get 2K words pretty quickly and easily suggests that said stratagem might actually work.  We shall see.

NaNoWriMo, Day 12: 1672/20080.

1,672, 20,080.

Finally powered through to finish Chapter 4. I also managed to shock the elf! The elf is perhaps a little bit more straight-laced than he thought that he was. I was amused by that.

NaNoWriMo, Day 11: 1673/18408

1,673/18,408

Vignette’s done.  Wondering whether to put it up at Patreon, let people see it.  But it probably won’t make much sense to people, out of context.  I dunno.

Now I gotta get back to the main story.
