Just getting into the nasty stuff. Mwahahahaha!

And taking a laptop to bed to continue writing is good. Even if I can't see what's on the screen...

13500 words... woot.

That's a quarter of the way to 50,000 and I'm only six and a bit chapters in. Heck.

Stats later.

Still only a prologue and 3 chapters (and chapter 3 unfinished again, WTFBBQ!?), mainly because I joined yesterday's chapters 1 and 2 together, finished yesterday's "chapter 3" with another 1600 words, and made a good start on today's chapter 3 - and to my surprise one rather racy moment made it into the chapter while I wasn't looking at the plot, just telling out the story... hehehe...

Rather than keep this open for comments, I'm only going to allow comments on the November 1st thread (and each following Saturday), so chat to me there if you wish. :)

Stats: 117 paragraphs, ~6900 words, 37159 characters
Prologue, 15 paragraphs, ~800 words (I split a paragraph in two for emphasis)
Chapter 1, 35 paragraphs, ~2250 words
Chapter 2, 44 paragraphs, ~2450 words
Chapter 3, 23 paragraphs, ~1400 words [so far; at least another 700 to come]

Joining yesterday's chapter 1 and 2 together was a good move, it now consists of two balanced halves (day and night, you could say :), there was a short addition of a sentence or two here which forced a long paragraph to be broken, which is why the numbers changed slightly from yesterday.

Yikes. Looking at the lengths of those three chapters, maybe I'll be writing an average 2000 words per chapter, which could mean 150,000+ if I get all the way to the projected 93. I suppose I shouldn't have drawn up such a complicated plot...

Choir rehearsals for the next two nights, so I don't expect to get much further until Wednesday.

I have registered at NaNoWriMo under a nom de plume; it is not an anagram of Philip M. Legge, though it might have the letters P, M, L somewhere in there. (And there are only about a couple of dozen short of a thousand Melburnians writing away at the present time, which won't make it easy for you to guess which one I am.) I won't be posting anything on-line to indicate what I am doing; which is the usual way I work - it only will appear as a complete MS when I've actually finished writing it (which may be after November 30). I have a long synopsis drafted with my favourite writing pen in a red book that some people will have seen me scribbling in a lot recently. I think I plotted out 93 "chapters" - or shall we just say "plot events", since I realised I'd left out one tiny but important establishing bit of exposition that had to occur between "chapter 1" and "chapter 2", and it basically became a new chapter...

My "chapters" look like they'll be on average 1,000 word length, though I'm aware that some of the action around chapters 60 are going to be quite wordy. Think of Sir Thomas More being tried for high treason in "A Man for All Seasons" for an explanation. So the total length will be heading towards 100,000 words.

Stats: 71 paragraphs, ~3800 words, 20612 characters
Prologue: 14 paragraphs, ~800 words
Chapter 1: 18 paragraphs, ~1200 words
Chapter 2: 16 paragraphs, ~1000 words
Chapter 3: 23 paragraphs, ~800 words (I'll have to continue chapter 3 again after some sleep)

Some random words: mountainside, bobbing, ague.
