Woot! Well I’m back to writing and so far I’m now up to 12,054 words. My story has been just flying out of my fingers. It’s taking some interesting twists and I’ve also got another character who came out of nowhere. She’s added quite a nice new dimension to the tale. I must admit, this story is my first to have literally gone by the seat of my pants, all of my other stories I’ve sat down and thought them out, outlined them and really created quite a lengthy amount of information on them. Even how they will end and bits of the dialogue.
So this is really new territory to me. I’m not sure yet, whether pantsing will be my style of writing, as I still feel a bit more comfortable outlining and knowing what’s coming. However, I do like the freedom that my mind is just letting lose and writing what comes in it. No matter how odd it sounds now. The story is simply being born and growing. Although, too early to tell, I have a feeling I will be a bit in between pantsing and plotting.
So, today I’ll be continuing to write and taking time to study writing craft! I hope all of you who are doing NaNoWriMo are having a great time and keep going, we’ve still got a few more days left!
