NaNoWriMo Update


I started NaNo late this year. There were exams and a whole bunch of stuff that happened, so I didn’t sit down and start typing until November 13. I figured 3,000 words a day was possible. Well, in theory... but it takes time to get back into the swing of things so it hasn’t quite worked out that way. Here is a brief view of what’s happened so far.
13 November 2014:
First Sentence Written: With a swirl of leaves, the first magic came.
Last Sentence Written: The blade sang briefly, before it bit into the leaping darkness and its song was drowned out by a shriek.
