NaNoWriMo, Day 22

by on November 22, 2015

I am almost to the 25,000 word mark.  This, of course, means that, if I hit that mark tomorrow, I will have about six days to power through 25,000 words. Oh dear.

Darlene the Invincible’s plot continues. She is singlehandedly assaulting a castle because her army of followers (soon to be called Darlenists) have neglected to bring rope ladders with which to scale the walls. (Oops.)  I have, however, written myself into a small dilemma. The castle defenders have just dropped a pot of boiling oil on our heroine. She, being invincible, will of course survive. But, does the invincibility extend to her clothing? If it doesn’t, wouldn’t the oil set it all on fire, in which case Darlene would quickly find herself in an awkward position? And if that happens, if you’re invincible, do you still care about awkwardness? Is a puzzlement.

I could avoid the awkwardness easily, of course, by simply making her invincibility powers extend to her clothing. Then the question is, how far does it extend? Does it stay the same level, or does it grow? Would Darlene wind up accidentally making her enemies invincible? Then the world? Hm.  Questions, questions.  The story goes on!

  1. I have found this year difficult too, for NaNo, but I’m getting there.

    Well done on hitting 25k (I assume you have exceeded that by now 😉 )
