NaNoWriMo Check-in Post, Part Two

Yeah, okay, the second part of the month didn’t go according to plan. I was supposed to write more. I didn’t. That’s a short version. The longer one is below.

-> word count wise: last night, at the end of November 20th, I was at a little over 26k. Yes, I am behind. I expected to be behind, because I had a bunch of important things to deal with, but I was hoping to be, well. Less behind? 😉 I have a lot of free time coming up, though, so I’m not that worried.

-> story wise: I skipped two scenes in the middle, because they were blocking me. I had no idea how to make them interesting, so I set them aside and wrote the next one. And now I’m moving forward again.

-> easiest to write: sex. I actually texted my friend today: “When in doubt, write porn.” 😉

-> hardest to write: these two scenes I mentioned earlier. I know I have to come back to them, because they need to be there, but I decided to skip them for now.

-> what I’m excited about: I’m getting to know my main characters more and more and I like them both. We will see how I’m going to feel when they start making trouble.

-> what I’m worried about: being behind on my word count. I know I can catch up in the next few days, I just want to do it as fast as I can.

That’s it from me. If you’re participating in NaNo, how are you doing? Better? Worse? Or maybe you’re done already?
