words and still going strong. The only trouble I'm having is that I think I might be telling my story too quickly. I'm going to have to go back and add some bulk into the plot before I get to this point in the story, but that's fine. I don't know though - part of me is questioning whether the arbitrary 50,000 word goal of Nano is something I need to be concerned about if it causes me to add unnecessary filler to my story. Then again, the point is to write a novel, not a short story - so I need the story to fill the pages. That's the challenge.
