Journaling - Day 8 of NaNo

Word Count so far: 13,376

I'm finally caught up after the weekend! Hurrah!

Ashamed as I am to admit it, at one point I was forced to resort to pulling one of the infamous NaNo stunts along the way:

Grayson forced a smile and said something mildly profound as a moving conclusion to the chapter, but at present the author is unable to think of what it is so it will be added later.

Shameless, I know. But hey, sometimes a writer's just gotta do what a writer's gotta do.

Writers, have you been forced to pull any 'NaNo stunts' so far?


  1. I've done a lot of breaking the fourth wall. I've even broken the fourth wall about breaking the fourth wall. But it works.I won already.

  2. What stunt? That's how I usually fill in gaps when I'm eager to write a different part of the story.

  3. Ha ha :) That's funny! And I'm glad you're caught up. Unfortunately, procrastination has had serious consequences for me...
