I interrupt my sequence of Worldbuilding posts to announce I’ve hit the 50,000 word mark for my SpoNoWriMo novel! I’m so excited. Though it isn’t an official NaNoWriMo novel, it was still a blast. My story isn’t finished yet, but the climax is in sight, and I think I’ll keep charging ahead until it’s done.
And so far, it’s dreadful.
Given that I’ve been pushing myself to write it and to not second guess my writing, the prose is far from stellar. It is definitely not something I want anyone to read, at least not until I give it a good round of revisions. Not only are there issues with the prose itself, but the story is somewhat disjointed by all the times I’ve adjusted things in the story without backtracking to fix previous scenes. I can definitely see where I need to improve as a writer!
