At 6200 (and the day is not over) I am a bit behind on word count but I am ahead of where I was my first nano experience. My outline grows. I have added sections for characters and build on details as I get to know them. I have also added sections for details of places in the story to help me place the characters in them. I have a mostly complete map of the general story and beginning to break down the separate scenes.
I made myself a writing playlist in iTunes to stay in the mood and of course I have a supply of chocolate covered coffee beans.
Enough procrastinating! Jae and Aedan have not technically met as humans yet so I have to get them together. I could use a couple thousand more words tonight!
