For the record: This NaNoWriMo thing is a roller coaster. After a little cross-eyed slump from week two, I found my mojo and rustled up some fresh ideas on how to ramp up the tension as I head into the middle of the The Book. I had to get real with myself about how my characters would behave. Not how I would love to see them portrayed on screen, but in real life. Or in fiction life, rather. I had to get out of my thinking rut in order to push forward with all this breakneck drafting.
