Note to self and other writers--
If you are writing a series, be sure to re-read the previous book or books in the series so you won't make stupid mistakes.
Man, I was bringing folks back from the dead, calling folks by the wrong name and not remembering if the character had 6 siblings or 9.
Another good idea to do is have what I'm going to call a post outline. I have an outline that gives me a route that I could go in while I'm writing but I need an outline that documents where I really did take the story. Basically a chapter summary.
This may seem like common sense and I would have said that myself before I saw all of the ooops moments I had.
Whew! End rant...
My total word count is 6050. I was hoping to be at 8000 but crap happens. If (or when) I'm too lazy to let you guys know my status, there is a little box to the left that will show you my total word count. Now sometimes the NaNoWriMo site "be in his feelings" but as soon as I'm able, I do update the total.
I hope that you are doing well with your novel. Happy NaNo-ing!
