Fortunately I’d roughly plotted out the whole thing, and as I wrote, I figured out more – double agents, Tesla knockoffs, and magic mirrors. It’s a rough draft, of course, but I think I can smooth it out into something worth reading.
My main takeaway from NaNoWriMo this year is to not procrastinate as severely next year. That last week sucked; I was writing nonstop, mostly to get words down without thinking of character development or subplots, and that part will definitely need to be heavily revised, which means I’ve created more work for myself. But at least I finished, right?
