Since my last post on this topic I’ve managed to hit the halfway mark. 25K words. Which is a lot.
I’m pleased I’ve managed to catch up, now it’s just staying caught up. I’m still really grateful that I decided to outline this novel. I’ve had a few minor changes as I’ve gone along, a couple of things that I thought would work that didn’t, and a couple of scenes that turned out to be redundant. But I can definitely see the merits of outlining.
I used the Snowflake method to do my outline. Once the madness of NaNo is over and I’ve actually got the story written I plan on writing up a piece on what I think of how this method has worked for me, and generally what I think of it.
I have a few other projects (and life things) that are currently getting neglected and will require catching up on in December.
But I’m trying not to think about that. I hate being behind with things.
And now I should probably get back to getting to my daily word count goal for the day. 🙂
