NaNoWriMo, Day 20: Lowered Expectations

Short of a miracle, I don’t think I’ll be hitting 50,000 words by the end of the month. I’m going to keep writing Out of the Shadows because I enjoy the story and perhaps I’ll make it halfway to the goal. If I manage that, I’ll be happy; anything beyond that will be icing on the cake. The writing will continue into December and beyond, until the story arc is finished, and regardless of whether or not I think I’ll make 50K, I’ll keep posting daily updates.

Today was a lot of violence without any over character development or introspection as I wrapped up the (immediate) tale of the not-dead prostitute’s abducted daughter. There may be future repercussions for some of the characters involved, as the abduction was related to the death of the other prostitute. The dead one.

Tomorrow there should be little or no violence, as I plan to focus on the aftermath of my protagonist passing out in an alley following the rescue of a suicidal man from the tallest building in Cleveland, Key Tower. There are clean sheets and bacon involved, not to mention an attractive redhead.
