For a couple of months, I’ve been saying that I’m going to spend Nanowrimo writing a first draft of The Drowning City. Well, it’s the first of November, so it’s time for me to put up or shut up.
And so far I have, indeed, put up – I just wrote 1250 words, which comprise the script to the first nine pages and some brief notes about how the chapter plays out, which should probably be another 3-4 pages.
I’m working with some pre-existing notes and dialogue fragments, so it’s debatable if this “counts” – NNWM is supposed to be about writing a bunch of new content. But that’s 1250 new words on top of stuff I already had in Evernote, so I’m saying that yes, it damn well counts for me. Hopefully I will be able to plow through to new territory, as well. My brain is offering interesting suggestions now.
