Nanowrimo Check In

How is everyone’s Nanowrimo going? Getting your words in? Hopelessly behind? Already done? (Insane, I know, but I know people who can finish in two weeks! Yes, I hate them, too.)

I’m sitting just about where I want to be, with a couple of extra days in the bag in case I need them later.

My biggest problem is that my word count is not matching up with my outline, and it looks like I’ll be finishing this draft well before hitting 50,000 words. On the one hand, that’s kind of cool–I’ve never finished Nanowrimo with a completed draft before, usually it’s more like 2/3 of a draft. On the other, it means I need to find a new project to fill in the rest of the month. I have a couple of shorter pieces I’m kicking around, but haven’t decided yet which one to go with. I suppose I’ll know when the time comes.

For those of you writing historical fiction, or just interested in history, I’m thinking about doing a series on the Victorian period (England and America mostly, but other places too, if someone asks), so if there is a particular item you are curious about or have questions on, leave a comment below and I’ll work it into the series.
