As of 10:16 p.m. tonight, my current word count is 7,715.
I have changed my goal to 25,000, because I was feeling too overwhelmed. Today I wrote 4,034 words. Phew!
Let’s talk characters and what their appearances mean.
My main male character, Allium, has curly brown hair, and light blue eyes. He is supposed to be plain, not especially attractive. Because my main female character is supposed to think he looks gorgeous, even though he is really plain.
My main female character, Aednat (pronounced AY-NIT – it’s Irish) is supposed to be fiery. Mainly because her name means little fire. Her hair is red and has soft curls, with green eyes. She is supposed to have high cheekbones. She is definitely a ton of fun to write. She looks sort of like Amy Pond (Karen Gillan).
I love how fierce Aednat is. She especially enjoys teasing Allium.
Verdict of Day 9: 8. I feel like I have written a ton, and that makes me incredibly happy.
That’s it for today! Hope your NaNoWriMo is going good!
