I finished the short stories about my main characters!
The process did two thing, helped me dig deeper into the character's voices, and illuminated the most interesting characters in my cast. They weren't who I thought they would be!
From these stories I was able to quickly summarize the key physical, psychological, sociological, and story-related features of each character. Plus, thanks to a great NaNoWriMo Forum suggestion, I figured out each characters Eneagram Personality Type. It was a great way to get a little more insight into the way the characters think.
I wrote about 2,500 words five days in a row this week, which is the most I've written since grad school finals week.... and the most fiction I've written ever.
It gives me high hopes for November, especially since I enjoyed it.
Woohoo, 1 week to go!
