Anyone who has done NaNo pretty much just has to face it. At some point or another in our noveling process the pressure and spur-of-the-moment nature of NaNo takes over and completely murders a sentence, paragraph, chapter...or sometimes entire plot...of our novel.
Day before yesterday I had minor squabbles with my novel over NaNoish issues. But last night my novel took a turn for the stereotypically NaNo.
First my one main character was recklessly driving down a freeway in pursuit of his true love (who has hated him since the beginning of the book), and God shows up in the back seat. Yes, God. Like that God. THE God. In the backseat of his car. And some people think purple ninja bunnies and exploding zombies are bad!
Next my novel informed me that one huge group of villains who are ruling the world with an iron hand isn't enough. Oh no! There's another group of villains now too. The villains who think they should be ruling the world, and will kill the first villains to do it.
And my two main characters in the middle of this...trying to kill off BOTH GROUPS of villains! o.O
If that wasn't enough; my main characters also stopped fighting and admitted their undying love for each other... Which is fine because I intended to have it happen...about another 20,000 words further in!
What can I do? Nothing much, I guess.
On the bright side I'm to 30,831 words. Yay me! :D
