NaNoWriMo Journal Day 3: Late night

So, I’m writing this on Nov. 4th because last night I was writing right up until midnight (11:30) and didn’t have time or the inclination to sit down and then write a journal entry. Last night I clocked in at 1519 words (under goal) bringing me to 5123 words total so far. I’m still above average, which is pretty good, but we’re still only three days in at this point and I need to pick up the pace.

I am relatively happy that I managed to get those fifteen hundred words written all while cooking supper, doing laundry, getting my hair cut and then cleaning the kitchen.

I’m into the third chapter now.  I’m keeping them fairly short to try and give it a somewhat snappy pace.  I’m just about at my first, short, space battle and I’m looking forward to having a little fun with it.  I’ve been going back and forth as to give my characters the win, or to let it end with them barely getting away.  I want to do a mix of both, but I’m really leaning toward not putting the screws to them quite yet.  Things are going to get plenty tough for them in the near future.
