well, i made it to half my goal, and not quite enough to "win" at Nano. got to 45,258.
i did much better than a few years ago when i tried Nano, and above everything it got me to the point where i just put words to the page. I'm getting a solid skeleton, and will have to flesh it out a bunch to where i can take it somewhere (the entire prologue is going to be redone, but i think that i need the non-first person perspective to introduce the character and world).
Dialog is going to be another aspect i have to rework. just need to make sure that all the other characters sound like them, and not Tzal.
Hoping to keep making progress like i did the last two weeks, but have a bunch more world building to do in order to make the next section flow like the first quarter did. also need to plot out the flashback sequence i skipped.
Tzalaran's favorite hangout, hence it is the name of my blog on the web. Here i'll talk about the writing of "Scales of the Assassin", working title of the start of Tzalaran's saga, and give background information on the world Tzal lives in.
