NaNoWriMo: Day 3

I'm at 4077, which puts me behind, but I needed to turn in the page proofs of GOING TOO FAR. After years of living with this manuscript on 8 1/2 x 11 pages in Times New Roman, it's so cool to see it laid out like a book, with beautiful chapter headings and drop caps. I'm getting excited about the release in March.

But back to NaNoWriMo. I have elements of pantser and plotter in me, but the one constant through all the manuscripts I've written is that I don't write in order. I did start out with the beginning of the book this time, but I'm about to bounce to the climax of part 1, which will work out to chapter 7 or so.

How are you doing?
