NaNo 2017 Progress Report 1

So far, so tentatively good. I haven’t had a chance to write anything today, which is annoying because I know exactly what I wanted to do, but alas, life and admin got in the way. However, I have plans for getting lots more done tomorrow, which should hopefully carry me those annoying last few words over the 30K mark.

Progress! It is being made!

Have some snippets – no spoilers. (I don’t think…)


DAY TWO
Aquila’s War Ch 1

I might not be pushing on quite as fast as last year, but I’m pretty happy with it so far. Especially considering how out of practise I am and how much of my free time is being gobbled up by a greedy puppy. All in all, progress is good, and will hopefully pick up as the plot pace increases.

To all my fellow NaNo participants out there, I hope your stories are going well, and here’s to many more words to come!

Merry Saturday, everyone!
