I haven't posted on here since last Tuesday, mainly because I've been busy writing / doing other things. I did mention that typing the novel gave me a lot more free time, right? Anyway, now I'm at 45k.
I must admit, I finished the actual NaNoWriMo story I started writing on November 1st before I got to 45k. I think it was around 44k. What I'm writing now is a short story about the main character's grandfather when he was in grade nine. I think I'm going to go the route I thought of in one of my last posts - turn the story I wrote into a short story, and write a few other stories about the time travelin' pocket watch.
Either way, I have less than 5,000 words until I hit 50k. I'm so close to that benchmark, but the words are starting to get harder to churn out. I thought that if I started a different story it might be easier to hit the 50k mark, but so far it hasn't. I will find a way, though.
Just thought I'd update people on how things are going. I hope to have it all finished soon, because I want to do a podcast Tuesday night instead of trying to finish the novel in the last minute (so to speak).;
