NaNoWriMo Day 21: Time Gap

Tonight I wrote a lot more than I thought I would.  I hit 60,000 words!  It’s coming along and I love every moment of it.

I realized that I needed some time to pass.  Earlier in the story, three months passed between chapters.  I needed to show my MCs at a later time after they got to the Iridescent Caverns to show how their lives had changed.  But then I realized that this threw off my original calendar for my timeline of events.  I need something that will happen soon to happen in the spring, and that time had passed.  So, in order for everything to line up correctly, I needed to have a nine-month time gap, meaning this story has taken a little over a year to tell so far.  And I think it works out well.

I can show my MCs older, now Jassa is fourteen and Rike is thirteen.  I can show them with much more training and skill, and established their abilities a little more before we head into the climax.  Overall I think it was a good choice.

Current word count for Mistcraft: 60,686/50,000!

Until we give thanks,

Andrew Ronzino, Poopsmith
