Nano Day 8


I am now at the part of my book where all five of my main characters are together in one scene for the entire weekend. I have been leading up to this part of the book for almost 20k pages, and now that I'm here, I feel a sense of fear. Whose perspective will I tell it from? How will I merge all of these personalities into one house for one weekend? Thankfully, it's only a few chapters, and things will go back to semi-normal. I would love to hear how your Nano books are coming? If you are not participating in Nano, then how is your writing going? Make sure you remind yourself why you started writing to begin with -- tap into that energy!

I am a new follower, and wanted to say hi.
Keep on trucking- 20k is nothing to sneeze at, that is a fantastic amount of words!

Writing lots of characters in the same scene can be fun! Just make their interactions authentic...people interrupting each other, getting in the way, and saying the wrong thing usually works well! =)

For me, NaNo is going well. I'm ahead of schedule on word count, which I need because of the two jobs (12+ hours a day) I'm working. Today's word count was only in the 200's but I really can't keep my eyes open any longer...

@brandileigh2003 Nice to meet you, and thanks for following!

@Erin - Great suggestions, I think that I forget the normal flow of things sometimes!
