Nanowrimo day 29: Crossing the finish line in 1,737 words

“Some say all the world can fit into a backpack”

Nanowrimo 2011Nov. 29, 2011
NaNoWriMo status and progress for writing a 50,000-word novel in one month:

  • Written today: 1,737 words
  • Total so far: 50,893 words
  • Remaining: 0 words

One to go.

Today’s story, the next to last in my 2011 NaNoWriMo project, brings together two of the most essential characters in my wee travel fantasy universe. Over a few pints of stout, they discuss the world, a bit of “what’s it all for, then?” and also give us insight into their characters.

For the moment, it’s a bit of a character piece, with discussion giving us more glimpses into who these two men are, what motivates them, what they hope for, what they despair of. In the back of my head as I wrote, I thought of Doctor Who: The End of Time, a bit of a character piece on The Doctor and some of his history and drive.

There’s good interaction and some fun dialogue. During rewrite, I’ll be able to dig out the core of the story, and expand on that.

Oh yeah. I’ve also crossed the finish line today! 50,000 words written, with one day to go (and with a couple of days off, to boot). It’s been a lot of fun, but it’s not done yet.

There’s still one more story to crank out, and that rough draft will get laid down tomorrow, the last day of NaNoWriMo 2011.
