Well, we’ve passed the midpoint of November, so of course I should have nearly 30,000 words written so far. I don’t. I’m a little behind. By about 12,000 words. However, the good news is that I’m feeling better, I actually have about 45,000 words written in my story, I’ve passed the midpoint and I’m getting into some good stuff. So even though I’m dreadfully behind, I am choosing to stay positive and believe that I can still finish this thing by the end of the month. I’ve been wrestling with a particularly difficult plot element for some time now and I think I may have a solution for that. Last night at church while I was sitting in the class I’m taking on worldviews I had a moment of inspiration (completely unrelated to the class topic) that provided a possible way to deal with my problem. I’m very excited about it, even though it will require significant rewriting of what I’ve already written. However, November is not National Novel Rewriting Month (I think that might be December, unofficially), so I’m going to move on with new words and fix my existing words later.
This is also a good time for an announcement: If you usually read these posts when they magically appear as a note on Facebook, this is probably the last time you will be able to do so. Facebook has announced that they will no longer automatically import blog posts into notes. So beginning with my next post, I will be sharing via a link on my Facebook page and I would be so happy if you would follow those thinks and continue reading the random meanderings of my mind. Enjoy!
