I'm currently at 11,674 words in my NANOWRIMO novel. My goal is to reach 50,000 words by November 30th. I'm happy to say that I'm on track.
The writing is getting easier each day. That said, the story is currently a mishmash of scenes. On one page the main character is recounting his life in high school, on the next he's describing the conditions at Camp St. Teresa and pointing out that the Camp's location is suspiciously close to Groom Lake. I've also written, briefly, about the events that take place on September 8th at the testing facility (see the timeline for more info). At the moment my objective is just to get it all out, then do some major rewriting and story structuring next month.
I still need to address a bunch of stuff:
And there are new mysteries that need to be dug into:
I like what I have so far, but again, it's going to take some serious editing and story design to craft all this into a novel.
Your ideas for structure and plot points are welcome. Feel free to post questions, comments, concerns...
