I know, I know, there’s no word count on the side bar. The lovely people in NaNoLand haven’t made one yet, and so instead, I am bringing you this lovely update. Because I know you’re wondering, I’m starting this Friday with a word count of 5,526 words. Not too shabby, right? I’m trying to keep ahead so that when the projects from school plow me over, I’ll have some wiggle room. So far I really like the story and I adore the characters. I’ll give you a tiny preview of it all:
George Gently is a poor soldier who is released from service after being disabled by a bullet. He makes friends with a man named Gilbert Griveson (who is dying of cancer, but refuses to tell anyone). Together they hatch a plan to get George married to a rich woman, who will then finance his dream of becoming a famous inventor.
And that’s where I am right now. Gil and George. Rockin’ the rich lady clubs. Hahaha.
Next week I might provide you with a short scene out of my terribly written and quickly paced story. Until next week!
