After what seems like a torturous start, I’m now nearly 20% finished with my novel. I am certainly not making NaNo progress with it, but I like where it’s going and I’m excited to get to work. The danger is that I really don’t have more than a chapter or two ahead planned (not my normal style). Plus, the whole beginning may need to be trashed and rewritten. (Which I guess puts me at about 10%).
