NaNoWriMo Update – Day 14


Most of us have heard of NaNoWriMo. In case you don’t know, November is National Novel Writers month. On, you can join a massive community committed to writing in their quest to reach 50,000 words written for the month. Of course, you can set your own goal. Maybe you only want to write 25,000 words. Maybe you want to write 5000. Your goal is up to you. Most members of the writing community are supportive, kind, and willing to offer respectful advise if it is asked for.

I set my goal for the standard 50,000 words. This is my first dive into the NaNoWriMo pool and I’d like to share updates on my progress periodically with you lovely folks.


1,667 words









So, last time I chatted with you about this I had to decide whether to do a bit of a rewrite/edit or just go full pantser and hope for the best. I did decide to go full pants and while I can’t say it is going smoothly, it is still going. I’m coming up on a major part that was pre kinda planned (plantser usually) that hopefully starts things flowing again.

In the next section I’ll be doing an abduction. After that is extortion, revelation, and murder. It will be fun! I can’t decide exactly how to off the character, though. Do I shoot them? Stab them? Throw them off a cliff? Or do I go full crazy and get creative with it and have to google blood splatter patterns so that the FBI will flag my IP for crazy watch? Not that I am paranoid about that or anything.

Have any thoughts on the subject you’d like to share with me? Let me know!

      1. Honestly, I don’t usually dig the whole cop procedural. But I can enjoy Castle due to the whole writer solving murders thing, and because I have a man-crush on Nathan Fillion.
