Am at 48,666, a nice, evil round number to end Day 29 of NaNoWriMo. So far, on track to finish in great form by midnight tomorrow night, wa-hey! And no, it’s far from finished.
I’ve gotten to a very sensitive point in the novel, one that requires a lot of emotional investment because of some pretty difficult scenes. Difficult, as in, Oh man, that’s painful shit. How do people write this stuff without twisting their intestines all in a knot? I know that writing is supposed to be an all-consuming exercise, but no one mentioned the physical discomfort. Gah.
Histrionics aside, it’s shaping up fairly well, perhaps well enough that edits won’t be so bad. It’ll be a loooong editing process, to be sure, but not too unbearable. I hope.
