Day 26 - 4 days remaining

He who chooses the beginning of the road chooses the place it leads to.

— Harry Emerson Fosdick


The word count today is 43,342! Some time ago, you started down a road Nano Writer, just you and your protagonist and maybe an assorted cast of friends, allies, a mentor or wise woman and perhaps a shady guy you were never quite sure about...

Your protagonist had a goal, a mission, a desire and standing in his/her way was an antagonist with the same (or better) desire to keep your hero from that goal or desire. Over the last three weeks or so, battles were won and lost, lessons learned and perhaps love was found (or lost). Now it's time to start thinking about the road home.

Of course, a lot can happen in four days... and maybe your road still has one or two more twisty turns in store for your weary characters. But keep in mind all journeys come to an end and ours is just around the corner.

Questions? Comments? Travel tips? It's all good - so keep writing!

43,361. Juuuuust got back up over the minimum. (Man, that end of October project killed my mojo.)

I keep staring at my remaining outline (which includes really neat things like kidnapping, dramatic self sacrifice, epic battles, and the like) and thinking it just looks so meh, but I am going to persevere. I've been really bad about 5k and 10K goals, but I decided on my reward for winning, so hopefully that will serve as impetus.

So I started today (the 26th) 2,683 words behind my 1800/day goal; 4088 words later, I can now write just 1800 words a day for the next two days and reach 50K. Or, for that matter, 900 words a day for the next four days, but I really do want to validate before midnight on the 30th.

I don't know if I can wrap the story up by the 30th, but I'm certainly going to try...

44k! Starting to feel like it's dragging on though... Hoping I can fit the last five thousand words in somewhere. Sounds crazy just to be that close to 50k on an original story.
