End of the third week, now it's the end of Sunday. This last week I did the opposite of the two before it: managed to keep up every day of the week, then fell behind at the weekend. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday I got hardly any writing done because of various reasons of getting distracted. I've passed the 50k mark of NaNoWriMo goal, but I'm currently about 4800 words short of my own goals for this point. This week we go into Thanksgiving and Black Friday. I have an earlier schedule Thanksgiving and I'm off for Black Friday, so I should be able to make up the time and get back on track again by Friday, but I'll also have to write ahead to cover Saturday's because I'll be busy all of Saturday, so we'll have to see how it goes.
I haven't specifically gone into writing any entries about plot points of this one because of the material. I decided sometime back that I was going to basically split my approach: books related to indie games I have planned will also be done indie way and I'll self-publish (given that half of them are going to be novelization versions of games I'm working on), whereas books that are original works unrelated to any of that I'll possibly look into getting published by a publisher. I say possibly because the state of traditional publishing is of course pretty hard to get into, and it's really not that friendly to the author, but I'm not going to get into a rant on that right now. But this book is an original work, and so to not risk publishers turning it away for not being able to get first-publication rights, I'm not going to go into any specifics of this here.
