Kate's NaNo Update...

Well, I'm almost to 10,000 (8,773 to be exact) words. It's amazing how these characters invent themselves as I go along. I'm already wondering what will happen next. Do characters in your stories tend to write themselves? Even though I did a personality sketch of each character, I am still discovering their quirks and flaws.

So far this has not been a chore, it's been fun. Only 41,227 words to go. Since this is a Middle Grade novel I probably won't have to go beyond 30,000 words. If I do finish at that count, I guess I'll just start the sequel!

That's the way it works for me. I have a really hard time planning things out. I have a vague idea of where the story is going, but I'm constantly surprised by how they get there. It's so fun to see how things unfold
