Camp NaNoWriMo - Day 24 Status Report

I've written over 5500 words today.  I was gunning for 7500 but I'm not sure it's going to happen.  Whitlock and Natalie are at a strip club looking to meet up with one of Amber's old room mates.  I'm getting into the tricky section of the plot.  If I have Roberta reveal too much, I'll have to reason for Whitlock to drive to Tulsa to look for Marie Brydon.  On the other hand, if she doesn't reveal enough, it will be pointless to include her.  Decisions, decisions.

I had a couple other ideas on the way to Walmart and I'm a little too pleased with my own cleverness.

When tomorrow rolls around, I'll have six days in which to hit 50k.  Since I'm at 36k, I'll have to keep up my 2.5k per day pace to hit 50 by the deadline.  I'm not worried in the least.  Not only that, if I continue my usual pace, I'll be finished by my self-imposed July 15th deadline, giving me two weeks to figure out what I'm writing in August.

In other news, I saw a teen mother at Wal-Mart giving her baby a capful of Mountain Dew.  I have to work that into something I write somehow.


  1. At least the baby has no teeth yet, to be rotted out of her little skull ;)

  2. I'm no baby expert but judging by the size of my nephew, the baby was three or four months old. It seems way to early to doom the kid to a life of Mountain Dew addiction.
