NaNoWriMo Day 4: How It Went

Today started with checking the internet for election results. I realized that was only an anxiety-inducing spiral, so I started up a virtual write-in for my writers group.

The story took a bit to get started, but then the words flowed from my fingers. A subplot developed, and I wrote two scenes that weren’t even in the outline. I love when ideas spawn during the writing process. That’s why I’ll forever be a plantser.

In total, I wrote 2,201 words today, bringing my NaNoWriMo word count to 8,330 words. I’m 37,709 words into the novel and am pretty sure I can keep it up and finish the rough draft by the end of the month.

Hope you’re all doing well and taking a moment for self-care today.

Tammy loves to build worlds with words, exploring themes the effect of diaspora on the generations born elsewhere than their ancestors with the backdrop of tech or magic and dragons (sometimes both). These stories are inspired by her own family's immigrant experience. She's queer and many of her characters fall somewhere on the LGBTQIA spectrum (though that is not the focus of her work). She's married to an engineer who dances. Together they are raising three precocious teens in the Seattle suburbs. Two of her children are neurodiverse. Her experiences have taught her much about the world, its beauties and its injustices. All of this comes through in her fiction with a healthy dose of absurd humor.
