Nanowrimo 2021 wrap up and novel status

For Nanowrimo (national novel writing month) 2021 I continued my novel from last year. To remind anyone who hasn’t followed my sparse updates on the novel, the novel is a speculative fiction set after a global zombie and human conflict where the two (let’s call them) species coexist in a tense harmony. For Nanowrimo this year, I set myself two targets:

  • 500 words a day, which is not so ambitious, but was realistic when balanced with work commitments etc.
  • Finish the first draft of the novel.
