I wanted to write these check-ins to keep myself accountable for NaNo and I’m totally regretting it. I haven’t been writing! There’s not much difference from my first check in because the past fortnight has been horrible; both my co-writer and I have been sick, the election happened which was just awful, and I haven’t hit my sweet spot yet.
We took some time out and planned up to Chapter 8 which took some time but helped with understanding where our characters would be at what time, and the pace.

Too fast and there’s just chaos, too slow and what’s the point. So *spoiler alert* Chapter 8 is when shit goes down.
