Like last year, I'm participating in NaNoWriMo, which will cut into my blogging time, so instead of fresh posts, I'll be updating my progress here. Unlike last year, I'm not doing a traditional NaNo. I have a job I commute to now and I have plans for Thanksgiving, so I know I won't have time to hit that 1667 words every day. Instead, my goal is to write all the scenes in my outline, about 30 scenes, so about 30k words. This will get me a zero draft from which I can expand and grow the story, which I find easier than the initial drafting. So! Without further ado, below are my updates for the month.

Week 2 added: 10,746 words; 10 scenes
