Eleanor update – Week 2 of goal tracker

Eutemia  I  Regular

It is Day 11 (well, Day 12 by the time this is published) of my NaNoWriMo goal tracker.

Goal tracker word count: 7,893
Goal tracker goal: 20,000
Total word count:
End goal:

I’ve been asked where this awesome tool can be found. Check out the National Novel Writing Month website here http://www.nanowrimo.org and create an account. Good luck!

Somehow I managed to reach my targets for this week. I have no idea how that happened. Between watching Gopher’s complete playthrough of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Alanah (Charalanahzard) Pearce’s complete playthrough of Until Dawn, and this awesome video of a sand spider trying to hide (video below), I had very little time to myself to get these words down. It’s been crazy, I know. I’m just so busy. But I did it! 5,000 odd words isn’t too bad given I’d be struggling to meet that without the tracker. I love this tool, I really do, and I will continue to use it throughout my drafting process with Eleanor.

Although I am not 100% happy with what I’ve written, at least there’s something there for me to work from. Who knows? I might end up deleting the whole 20,000 words I am to write this month, but we’ll see. We’ll see.

So, Eleanor is going all right. As a whole, it’s going really well. I’m happy where it’s heading. The ending is the tricky part though. I have been working on it quite a bit this last week, but I’m still undecided about a few things.

I’m meeting the goals so far, which is great because I will be heading off early February to see The Book of Mormon in Melbourne! I am absolutely tempted to write solely of my Melbourne adventures (a trip to The Cornish Arms is definitely on the plate – see what I did there?). Perhaps I will. It’s not like anyone can stop me, unless they have a court order (the reason why I can’t sing Wuthering Heights in public anymore).

Back to Eleanor. There is so much I want to reveal about what’s been going on, and I am so excited about it all, but I know I shouldn’t. I wouldn’t want to spoil anything for my darling readers.That’s right, by reading this you have entered into a binding contract, which means you must read Eleanor once it is published.

I can reveal…
There has been a murder! Ermahgahd! (Insert Twilight Zone theme here).
But whose murder, what kind of murder, and who is the murderer? Not even I know!
Well, of course I know.

I can reveal…
Eleanor has become a bit of an absinthe addict (her favourite drink being Lemercier), which is perfectly understandable given her recent misfortunes, of which there are many.

I can reveal…
There has been some tension between Eleanor and Henry.

I can reveal…
The name of Eleanor’s horse is Gabrielle.

Thanks for keeping up to date with all things Eleanor!
