This checkin is late. And it’s late because NaNo has struck down my hubric back at me with a vicious counter-stroke in the form of flu.
Yes, I got sick. I spent all day yesterday vomiting (fun!) and most of today slowly returning to the land of the living. My older son also got sick yesterday afternoon, but he made a quicker turnaround than me. So that means that nothing got written for the last two days, and I took the day before that off from writing to reward myself with some gaming time.
But the reason for taking that day off (which has since become three days off) was because I’ve made excellent progress on my NaNoWriMo goals. I have completed:
- The Heresy Trial of Friar Travolo at 4,000 words
- Mr. Yamaguchi’s Late-Night Janitorial and Demon-Hunting Service at 3,500 words
- There Is No Such Place As Canada at 4,300 words
That’s three stories, and we’re only halfway through the month. The only remaining planned story is The Blasphemous, The Cruel, and the Weak, which I now have two weeks to complete. That should be plenty of time, though I still have to figure out what the actual plot of the story is.
Good luck to all the other NaNoWriMo’ers!
