The Words: 3,061 today.
I was hoping for another 3000 words today, which I was able to do. I have no idea if this goal will get me to the end of the book by the end of the month, but I’m sure hoping.
I went to a write-in tonight, which again, technically, is not a write-in. It’s a writer’s group, and a very small one lately at that. There was just me and another person tonight, which has been the case a few other times this month. We didn’t end up writing because we talked the whole time, but it was still a lot of fun!
Still, I had to get all of the words in after my daughter went to bed. Fortunately, good ol’ @NaNoWordSprints was there to help.
The Story: The king and prince together offered Lorrin the recently vacated position of military advisor for the kingdom (it had been held by the king’s close friend, the general who died earlier in the story). She is surprised and honored, of course.
I then moved on to follow Nathan and Clark back to Pithea. I truly didn’t expect Pithea to be in this story at all, so this was a special situation for me. I didn’t expect Penny to be in the story either, but suddenly, there she was! (Penny is Nathan’s wife.) Nathan and Clark filled her in on their most recent trip to the other country (which still doesn’t have a name…). Then Clark shared a theory with them about the Madness outbreak that is the first one the king’s region has ever seen. He thinks the Madness and the Power are connected, and he can’t help but suspect some huge conspiracy is going on. (It is.)
Total word count: 75,290
