Well, of course the holidays to make it a bit challenging to write. Between being at families and doing family type stuff, there were days where I only got 400-500 words written. But I'm up to 35,000 words total! If I can manage to write ~8000 each in the next two days I can "win" nanowrimo.
But if I don't it's okay. I'm just really proud of what I've managed to accomplish so far. This is the most I've ever written. I think in December I'll work toward filling out the story and making it make more sense. I definitely need to add more "steampunk" and/or "supernatural" aspects to the story. I think if I do that it will help fill out the word count as well. right now ti's too long for a short story but too short for a novel.
I also still have the option of interspersing the Inspectors storyline since he's dealing with more than just the original murder. I'm just really nervous about adding a second POV character to the story.
Well, it's late so I'm off to bed. We'll start tomorrow sneaking in words every chance I get and hopefully adding the second POV will get me word count up...even if I don't keep it when it reaches the editing stage.
