Picking Up Speed

As we come down to the wire on NanNoWriMo, I find that my excitement level has picked up considerably. I think part of that is due to the way I paced my writing. I stayed away from complex descriptors and focused mostly on the main plot points. That means that, right now, I'm actually coming to the climax of the story. Everything is now shifting into real time (like the TV show "24"). Once the conclusion is reached, I can end my novel, collect my 50,000 word win and then go back to edit, as I please. The bonus is that I think I have an actual viable story worth enhancing. 14,000 more words to go. That's 3,000 a day with a 3 day cushion. Time to move into high gear.
