NaNoWriMo Day 18 – Whoops

So, I – er – completely forgot to update my word count yesterday. There goes that last badge. *sigh*

In other news, I’ve been organising the scenes already written in Scrivener. I like it, but it’s kind of annoying in that I can’t see a word count except in one particular mode.

Last night, my other half gave me a nice long overview of his novel, should he ever get around to writing it. It was rather difficult not to picture how I would write it; I get the sense I wouldn’t be forgiven that one.

Then again, there’s that old saying: good writers borrow ideas from other people; great writers steal them outright… We shall see. It wouldn’t be the first time someone told me an idea and I ran with it (in probably a totally different direction).

I’m also not proud that I was rather critical – there were a few points I felt wouldn’t stand up to scrutiny (and one complete cop-out), but that’s not a reason for him not to write it that way. The only way to get this kind of thing right is to get it wrong a few times. Just like science, I suppose.

Anyway, I may or may not get any additional writing done today, but I know for a fact that next year’s NaNo will be done differently. And my procrastiscarf is coming along nicely šŸ™‚
