I'm loving this story. I've gotta be honest. Love it like I subconsciously love waffles.
I wrote T7H because I didn't care if, while I was rushing through Nano, I happened to completely obliterate the idea I was going for. In the end, it didn't turn out too bad. With The Harbinger though? I'm taking my time as I rush, as weird as that sounds.
I'm not trying to fit the story to the mold of the 50,000 word limit. I have every intention of just shooting right over the limit. Maybe not within the 30 days of November, but the final result will end up being much longer than T7H.
I'm not sure if that equates to a story that is too long and drawn out - I don't think so. I've spent more time making the characters significant rather than trying to hit the ground running. I hope it ends with a more significant and interesting story in the end because of it.
I'm lagging behind a bit, but I'm not too concerned. I can play catch up easy enough. Just a bit under the weather today.
Here's a few links to keep tabs on, should you so desire.
