NaNo, day 13: 30,122 words total, 3,835 of which were written today.

I have realized several things over the course of writing this fic:

- 3/5 of the way through and I'm not even a quarter of the way through my outline. This thing is going to be long, because it requires a lot of setup for a solid payout and that setup is complicated and taking forever.

- I've managed to go this entire time without referring to the princess by name. I'm waiting for people to start making all sorts of nonsensical guesses once I start posting this. (This has happened because the fic is in 3rd person limited from Terra's POV and he thinks of her as "the princess" or "Your Majesty." Every once in a while, I do something that actually makes sense in context.)

- My fellow WriMos are a special kind of crazy and I absolutely love them all. Also, evidently it only takes six people to eat the entire eight-scoop sundae at the soda fountain.

- Throwaway lines lead to outline jumping. 8D;;; Turns out that the consequences of one character who is terrible at lying trying to lie to a character who has been lied to for a long time, hates being lied to, and can tell when the first character is lying can really mess up your story. I wrote a whole lot of unplanned anger and angst tonight, and I have no idea how I'm going to get back on outline. I will need to rearrange.

Eventually, writeups on other stuff going on in my life - like the Muppets premiere, or general social stuff - will happen. For now, I'm going to bed.

Yay! Good for you. I'm proud of you and am glad you're having fun. I've fallen off the wagon a bit, what with this weekend's conference and all. And I have to apply for a job before I can get back onto NaNo...real life trumps fake novel and all. :P
