HEX CODE, the Cinnamon Frost YA, is progressing nicely this National Novel Writing Month. I’m 11,500 words in, which means, given that I started with a seed of 1500 words, that I’ve just finished 10,000 words so far this month.
That’s 20% of the 50,000 words that make up Nano. HEX CODE is looking to be a slightly more complex YA than I initially thought, probably 90,000 words rather than 60,000 (unless I can keep it tight) so I’m probably about 10% done with the book.
It’s quite fun – the Atlanta Homicide Barbershop Quarter, Rand, McGough, Horscht and Gibbs, have made their first appearance and now that all our principals know each other the scene fits like a glove. Interesting seeing things from Cinnamon’s perspective!
So … onward!
