About 20 people turned up for the St Louis NaNo write-in on Sunday, all tapping away on one Alphasmart, three Macs, and a bunch of PC laptops. Almost everyone was wearing headphones and ignoring the others, chugging coffee and slowly eroding their fingerprints. I am woefully behind on word count thanks to starting late, but the story is fun. And I’m still working on the sweater at lunchtimes.
My story has a small nuclear explosion in the first five thousand words, plus a really annoying geologist, and it’s almost time to start killing people off. I’m planning on terminating about six characters by the end of the story (none of them will be a Clifford Brooks). Hubby has already started his body count, his story is going really well.
