I hadn’t planned on doing this. Rune Mage for NaNoWriMo2016 was tough as it is because of work, but my friend Stef was like “Do it! Do it!” so I joined her cabin. I’ve pledged to do 25k, which is just under double my usual amount (~1.8k twice a week, about 14k a month).
Making progress so far, I think! Certainly allowing me to move ahead with the story and gives me time to have ‘spare’ chapters for when I’m too busy to write.
Word count for the novel so far is 121k and I haven’t reached the climax yet. This might be a book that’s a tad too long. Oops.
