NaNoWriMo - Day 3 Mid-Afternoon report

Well, I did it.  I made it to 10k.  10,368, to be precise.  I'll probably re-do the chase scene in chapter four sometime down the road but it happened.  Fenlock has been captured and I worked in my Jack Vance reference.

Chapter 5 is up next and will likely be one of the ones that takes an eternity to write.  It's one of those "I have to write this chapter to get to the chapters I really want to write" chapters.  Valaric sending letters to the magicians he wants to accompany him and waiting for their replies makes for a boring chapter so I'll probably work Fenlock being under house arrest at Confederation headquarters in there somehow.  I suppose I could have the two meet.  I'm a little excited to see how it goes down.  Tomorrow.  I'm finished writing for today.  I might even try to get some reading done tonight between The Middle and Modern Family.

In other news, I love having hot water again.  I didn't realize how badly the old one was performing until the new one nearly burned the skin off my back.  Marvelous.

Oh, yeah.  I posted the first four chapters of Wandering the Web of Worlds on my Goodreads profile.  If you're on Goodreads and we're not already friends, go ahead and friend me if you like.


  1. just throw in some action or conflict in the slow chapter. That always helps me

  2. I think I figured out how I'm going to do Chapter 5 while I was walking my dog earlier. There will be conflict. Oh yes.

  3. I am loving it and can't wait for more!

  4. I'm glad you like it. Progress is slow today since I'm neither off work nor working from home. I'll probably do the "no eating until the writing is done" thing when I get home tonight.
