TGIF - NaNo 5


Friday, November 05

Hello, welcome to Day Five of the 50K-word challenge.

No names are mentioned when doing this other than the fictitious ones. But I also like to see my protagonist get ahead as well. When I let my imagination run wild, I find that my protagonists can do all kinds of fantastic feats. They are fun to create even though I know I will have to edit it later.

The question of the day is “Are you having fun?” I know I am. Though at times, I do have my doubts. Yet, the best cure for those doubts seemed to be me sitting at my computer and writing. So, here goes…
