NaNoWriMo: Day Dozen

Gah. I’m almost to 20K and I’m really doubting that 50 are needed to tell this story. Only a few character’s back-stories remain, and the resolution/finale and all that, but still, The Corpse That Refused to Die might end up with a little bit of padding. Still, I’m amazed that I’ve come this far, am on schedule, even if I am going to be hopping in the Jeep and traveling to the Cape tonight (so no writing tomorrow).

Today’s sentences of choice features a secondary character and his father (yeah, we’re getting to that point, kids):

“Francis Buerreblanc Stebbins, the little constable that could, was born in the quaint little town of Kubla Khan, New Hampshire which was recently ranked the number two town in a America that a passing motorist would most likely come to a reluctant stop at the lone intersection, take a casual look around, make some sort of snap judgment, then keep on keepin’ on. His father, Lucas Bechamel Stebbins, was the vice-president of the state’s second largest business, a manufacturer of second place trophies for little league baseball.”

Yesterday: a smattering of words.

Today: A few thousand

Grand Total: 19,377

Listening to: Bonny ‘Prince’ Billy “A Minor Place”
