I have almost 20,000 words finished during NaNoWriMo. Since this is the 20th, I actually should have written 33,340. So I'm not going to reach 50,000 words this year. That's okay. The important thing is that I'm writing.
And I'm having fun doing it. Now that I know who the killer is (or the killers are), and I know why the person(s) did it, I am in writer heaven. That's one of the hard parts.
So I know the ending, and I just have to follow the route to get there. Unfortunately, the route isn't charted, since I don't outline. However, writing the book is a lot easier once the characters tell me about the villain(s).
The book itself is almost 2/3 finished, so I'm feeling pretty darn good. Who's the Rogue? will be completed this year. My publisher will be happy!
