NaNoWriMo Day 12: Not going to lose hope!

I will do this! I’m lacking a bit in the inspiration department at the moment I’m currently sitting at 18,330 when I should be sitting at 20,000 I’m going to try and hammer in a few more words but I doubt I’ll get more than a couple of hundred before I need to go to bed.

Tomorrow is another day and I plan of spending the weekend doing quite a bit of NaNoWriMo.

Of the people I know who are participating in NaNoWriMo I’m currently doing the best which is not normal, I’ve also managed to reach more that double my word count from last year which is an achievement in it’s self I guess. This year I will however win! I am going to do this no matter how hard it is, I am determined, I am also probably doomed to fail…

I’ve jumped the story 10 years into the future, added a character which I’d not initially envisioned being in the story and I’ve written a chapter from their point of view. I think the next chapter after the one I’m writing will also be from their point of view, I’m going to have to come up with some more characters because I keep on killing the ones I have. I’ve also got no idea how I’m going to work one character into the plot, and I’ve not even begun to explore someone who I thought would play a major role but has up till this point only been mentioned in passing. I don’t know how to introduce them at all.

I’m writing utter drivel, which is to be expected, especially for NaNoWriMo where word count is king and coherence is well a little lower than king… Maybe an estranged cousin of the king who they still call a prince, but would never ever inherit the throne…

I’m having serious trouble naming my characters, I’ve tried to come up with names that don’t sound silly, but to be honest they all sound stupid… I may have to rename every single character in the book when I am done.

That is all for now, because I actually need to add words to my NaNoWriMo and I’m sure none of you are actually interested in reading about it.
