Not even half of the story, as far as I can tell. But that’s OK; revisions will bring it down to a manageable number, once I work through the insanity that’s come so far.
There have been circular arguments, questionable descriptions, awkward backstory and info-dumps, and the main character I just added still had little to no idea how this is supposed to work, but that’s OK. That’s what revisions are for. Without NaNoWriMo, I’d have nothing written, nothing to edit and polish. I’m way ahead of where I’d be otherwise.
I’m trying for 60,000 by the end of the month, and averaging at least 1000 words a day in December if I can- but I’m also going to be taking one more pass at my finished novel to try to make it really great.
And then MAYBE it’ll be ready to go somewhere.
