National Novel Writing Month: Day 12

The NaNoWriMo website asks us to self-decribe as a pantster (going by the seat of her pants), plotter (has the project’s structure all figured out in advance), or plantster (somewhere in the middle). I chose plantster, and that continues to feel pretty good as I follow the rough shape I made for this novel into act 2 territory. I also started a subplot without really having a solid idea that’s what I was going to do, but just knowing that the text needed to breathe a bit after a pretty intense scene. This thing I’m writing, it feels kind of like a book, or at least it’s starting to. I’m at 18,176 words and climbing. I added 4564 words this weekend. I’m going to shoot for 2,000 words a day from here on out.
