This is just a wee update. I’ll give you more details during my regular blog post. Just wanted to let you know day one of National Novel Writing Month went well. Well, well enough, I suppose. I’ve reached the daily goal of 1,667 words, but my head is pounding — I have the biggest migraine, and it won’t let up, so I will have to abandon NaNo for today and pick up again tomorrow. Boo! I know. I was doing so well!
Today was pretty intense. I knew it would be hard to write Sade, but this is really hard. I want to be careful not to romanticise him. He was quite the vile man, so I want to make sure that no reader looks upon him with love hearts in their eyes… you know, like in the cartoons.
Anyway, I can’t babble too long, my brain is falling out.
Here are my stats so far:
Like last year, I will post up my stats each week, and you guys can kick me up the arse if I’m slacking.
Next week, I should have the title for my project — Crime of the Marquis de Sade is only a working one — as well as the cover design. So keep an eye out! I will also give you guys a better idea of my project.
Until next week.
