NaNoWriMo: Zoonosis Day 14 & 15

Starting to develop some thoughts about how this 50,000-word goal shapes the writing process. I will keep them to myself for now, and munch on them a while longer.  But when it’s all over, I’ve decided to write a bit about how feeling forced to write in such huge amounts has affected the writing itself.  Today, I managed 2,472 words, for a total of 22,222.  That seems like a good place to stop for today, even if it’s behind schedule.

Here’s a sample from today:

Manolo was not aware that his ancestor had played such a pivotal role in bringing about Magalhães’ demise, or in shaping the course of Spanish-Filipino relations. All he knew was that the one-armed woman that stood before him was beautiful, and that he had made her smile. And that thrilled him more than finding a case of rum amongst the wreckage of the cottage an hour earlier.


Gotta go sleep!
