Another evening of writing . . . another few difficult chapters to write.
My normal writing mode is to advance the story quickly, and getting to the end, but I also want it to make some sort of sense.
Sometimes that means getting to the finish line slower, and along the way correcting stuff as best I can.
In a real-world writing effort, I would have gone back and re-written a bunch of stuff. This, however, is NaNoWriMo . . . go, go, go, and fix later . . . except I still want it to be readable.
Perhaps I am doing OK with that, perhaps not. It’s difficult to hold 46,000 in one’s head all at one time. I have notes on some things, but I’ve not been as diligent with that as I was last year. My notes are falling behind.
Also, I’m not sure I can call this a detective novel any more. I mean, I could, but it’s a mighty stretch. Oh, well.
Chapters 25 and 26 will go live early Sunday morning in a password-protected post.
Here’s my progress so far:
I wrote 3,619 words this evening, which gives me a cumulative total of 46,267 words (per Scrivener). (edited to add: I updated the numbers from the initial count – minor editing when I posted and read it)
Here’s my usual ending to these posts.
For them interested in using my spreadsheet, a previous post explains it and provides links for getting either a copy of the Google Docs version, or downloading the Excel Spreadsheet version. That post is HERE.
Anyone wanting to read the novel, please shoot me an e-mail requesting the password, or leave a comment below to that effect.
As a point of information, asking for the password does not mean I will subscribe, or even read, your blog. It just means you get the password. Perhaps I might get curious and check you out, perhaps not.
One other thing.
Last year I did a precis . . . I know some people like the precis. I did it last year because I stopped writing for a few months, and then I was not writing regularly.
This puppy is going to be finished before the end of the month. I won’t have time to write a precis, and the timeframe is short enough to perhaps make its absence irrelevant. If not . . . sorry.
That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

Please, if you are considering bestowing me recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so. I will decline blogger-to-blogger awards. I appreciate the intent behind it, but I prefer a comment thanking me for turning you away from a life of crime, religion, or making you a better person in some other way. That would mean something to me.
