NaNoWriMo 2015 – Day 8 Progress Report

I probably should have done more writing today, but I decided I needed a day off.  Or at least an easy day.  I spent most of the time I had downloading public domain images and texts for future projects.  Writing from scratch is proving very hard for me.  I think I have the dialogue part down, in fact most of my book so far is dialogue.  But I need to work on my description and work on tightening my scenes.  I’m glad this is just a first draft and I’m getting everything down on paper.  But I’ll have a lot of editing and rewriting to do to make this story really come alive.

The word count for tonight stands at 15,234.  I’m still on track, which is good, but I’m hitting the sagging middle, which is bad.  I need to ratchet up the conflict.  Week two will be all about the conflict I think.
