Why hello Mr. Home Stretch. It's nice to meet you. My name is Alek.
That's right kiddies, I hit 40k last night. That means I have the rest of the month to write a measly 10k to win Nanowrimo. That's only about two (good) days of writing.
But now for some adventures in fiction writing. I needed Cecilia to become sick with a fever because she needed to have a kafka-esque dream. I felt okay when I was writing it, even though the dream sequence was truly horrifying. It wasn't until I stopped writing for the night, and I laid down to go to bed and I was thinking over the scene that I arrived at trigger city. I actually had a mini panic attack.
It's all good now though and the scene is finished and now I can just focus on putting lots of distance between myself and that dream sequence.
I hope to get to 45k by tonight, so I better be going.
