Nanowrimo Update

Nanowrimo… Gotta love it. I'm now 23.000 words into 'The Third Transmutation'. Vargas and Vladeks and Anshaat, oh my!

I've only actually written 10.500 words these first 6 days, but things are shaping up much better than I expected. I know I've got a plot going; the world has a rich flavor, I think, but will probably require some tweaking later. Some interesting characters made their appearance. And really. 10.500 words? That's a much better start of the novel than I'd dared to hope for.

I'm also hosting my very first write-in on Sunday, which is very exciting. There will be writing. There will be good company. There Will Be Cake. And more writing.

Good luck to anyone else toiling away at a novel out there :-)

Reading of your impressive 10,500 words in six days made the time spent rummaging through my attic for my binoculars so I could read this post worthwile ;P

Excellent stuff :)

PS: Good luck on Sunday, Jakob. Eat a slice of cake for me please ;)

Hmm, perhaps the barcode caption should read "Good Eyes Only"... But thanks for dropping a note anyway!

Your cake request has been duly noted :-)

Way to go,Jakob! How was the write-in? I bet you had fun. Keep us posted, as much as possible. But WRITING is of course your first priority.
