NaNo

is going fine. Not brilliant, not good, but I'm not scratching at the last words over the limit either. I really like my story so far, it's very action-y, but writing it in English is kind of hard. Not in the way of writing it down, because there might be the occasional word I have to look up, but sometimes I just fill in the German one; but rather in not being able to reread anything. I know one shouldn't do that during NaNo, and I don't, but I can't even look back at the last sentences I wrote because I instantly notice so many mistakes in grammar and spelling, it's not even funny. But yeah, in itself it works fine. I managed 1k in about 25 minutes yesterday, which is more or less my "write readable/with few typos German" speed. :)

Anyway, the story is really fun. The LI is going to be introduced this chapter and yeah. All excited for that. I love writing contemporary fiction. You can describe someone by having the MC say he has "hipster hair", haha. I guess you could do the same thing for high fantasy, but I can't imagine how. "King Arthur hair"? "Dragonlord Rowan styled pompadour"? "Common soldier arm braces"? Well, I guess if you are really in the matrial you are writing you can, but so few people do.
