Word count day 30: 50,036
So I am doing another double up in my post! Its the first day of December, I mean, this is crazy! Its felt like a lifetime since last month!
I hit 50,000 words on my beloved novel! Though I didn't finish it... That's right, Clandestine is still in the writing process. I manged to reach my climax at 45,000 mark. So that means that the story is going to be longer than 50,000, and heading towards 60,000 to 70,000 words. I knew this would happen!
So over the month of December I am going to finishing writing it. I want to have a finished draft my January!
The good thing about writing the end of the novel in December, is that I will have more time to go over the dramatic turn of events. I realized that I need hours to just go over one scene. Just to come to grips with the matter at hand...
All that matters though, is that I WON NaNoWriMo!!! This was my first year! And I really cant wait to do it next year. (I will make the time)
I will continue to add my word count in the top left corner of each blog post, for catching up with my word count and such.
I was talking to Mum today about revision. I am so exited to start revising, but will not lay a hand on it till its done! Any how, I was talking to her about how I was making a bucket list of things I want to experience in my novel. Every thing (expect for the feeling part, that was all me) I have written in this novel has been due to pure imagination. Many of the events, places, and experiences are things I simply had to imagine with great force!
So over the next year, I will be revising and re-writing my novel. And gaining experience in some of these plausible areas.
List of some of the things I am going to do:
- Ride in a tram, or a train.
- Learn how to speak some Latin. And gain the understanding of the ancient language.
- Look inside a school, either a public or private.
- Go into an alley. To see what it feels like to be crammed in-between two buildings.
- Stand in an Ice cold river.
- Take a look in an abandoned clock tower.
- Feel snow falling.
- Go to a proper grave yard!
- Take a tore of a Victorian house (going to do that soon)
- Go to a BIG library. (Thinking the university's bound to have one)
- Go to a chapel.
- Go to a convent.
I'm looking forward to this new adventure. Not only for my characters, but for me as well.
