NaNoWriMo 2021 Week 3

Day 15: 4,046 words. I pushed through to catch up to where I want to be and crossed the 30,000 word point, which means I am officially halfway through my word count goal for this manuscript.

NaNoWriMo 2021 Week 2

Day 8: 2,218 words. The story is just at the end of act 1 and about to ratchet into act 2. The point of no return hasn't happened yet, but the incident that feeds the point of no return has.

Nearing The End

Last week I continued working on revisions and ended the week with only five more chapters to go before this version of the story is complete.
