NaNoWriMo Update: Day 8

13,364/50,000 words

I just finished day 8 of National Novel Writing Month and I’m exhausted. It’s been such a busy week with work and college, yet I was still able to write and meet today’s goal.

This year’s NaNoWriMo feels harder than usual, yet this is the first time I’ve ever had 13,000 words on the 8th (my previous day 8 total was 10,653). I just started writing Chapter Three: The Letter, which is a bit of a fun chapter to write. Chapter Two was hell because I wasn’t sure where I was going with it and it seems to childish and unnecessary, but Chapter Three rocks. Chapter Three has snow, mountains, tea bricks, and an attack on the outpost. What could be better?

Actually, I’ve only written up to the tea bricks, but there WILL be an attack.

I spent most of the weekend working on world-building. I developed the basics of the world religions and gave them all names. I also worked on the currency system in use by my world and I have started renaming things.

I’ll see if I have time for another update this week.

Until then, happy writing.
