The good news is that this lets me fully partake in NaNo. I can continue writing at a feverish pace and still get some sleep. I was starting to get so frazzled that I wasn't able to write much. I'm about 16K in and the plot is thickening/sickening. Who knows which? Who cares which? Anyway, it is going reasonably well, except I have noticed I am drawing out the plot because I'm leading up to a suicide and I don't want her to die. If I keep drawing it out; maybe I'll hit 50K before she has to die. She's not even a main character. Her death is important to the plot. I just don't know if I can deal emotionally with killing her off. I keep telling myself she's not real; but I still feel like a murderer. If it is this difficult to kill off an adult character, how am I going to feel when I have to kill of a child? Yup. That's in the future plot too.
