NaNoWriMo Update

So, I’m really behind on my word count for the novel writing challenge this month. I’m at a healthy 5,563 even though I’m technically supposed to be at about 20k words. Granted, I have a good 4k written from October, so my story isn’t struggling. Its still pretty bare bones though. I thought for fun I’d throw out an excerpt from my story. Keep in mind, this is not edited, its a rough draft and well, its my first go at writing anything fiction for well over 10 years.

I can’t really preface this excerpt with a storyline, since I don’t have one fully formed. I’m just letting the story write itself, so to speak. I’m jotting down whatever comes to mind, be it plot, character development, or just atmosphere description. I have chapters laid out, and some semblence of a storyline with a beginning middle and no end yet.

Anyway, enough rambling. I hope everyone else out there working on ths challenge is doing well! Best of luck!!
