Up through about 22 of 210 rough pages. This swath involves a lot of little word cuts, for one. “All words are good words” for NaNo; which works, because sometimes you need to pound out a lot of words on the keyboard before your brain finally coughs up the idea you’re trying to get at. But once you have the knotty, gnarled, ungainly lump of prose that is your rough… then you need to do some cutting.
*Insert vroom of chainsaw.*
Over the last 5 pages I cut at least 60-odd words here, there, and everywhere; not to mention changed word choices to eliminate redundancy and hopefully produce clearer mental images of the scene. Over the past 22 pages I’ve added at least a page and a half of additional explanation, foreshadowing, and giving a bit character some better lines and motivation.
*Blows off smoke.*
The sequence of events so far in the plot still works. Yay!
(No, seriously, yay! Things can go badly off the rails very quickly if your original plot idea wasn’t solid.)
Going to be getting into a few of the major plot twists soon, though, so I’ll have to see what spins out as loose ends that need tidying up before the story ends!
