Camp NaNo Day Six

2.5k today and I finished both chapter five and chapter six though both worked mostly toward forcing Caden into a corner. Despite my characters veering off course here and there, I’m still pretty much on target according to the wordcount estimates in my outline.

I’m honestly surprised at how well finaldeadline is working for me. Especially since writeordie had the opposite effect when I tried it some time ago. The Overall writing quality of the first draft will likely suffer, but, if I’m lucky, there’ll be some buried gems that wouldn’t have come out otherwise. My Nov. ’14 project sure has them and, since I’m working with an outline, this one shouldn’t turn into a disjointed mess of plot points that go nowhere.
