🍻 Nanowrimo Day 14: Regroup after battle 1

What to write for NaNoWriMo today, based on the classic 3-act story structure.

Updated over a week ago

This week, you're taking your characters from their decision to go after their external goal, to the highest point in the story.

What to write today​

Today, you're writing the wrap up following battle 1 [21,671–23,338 words]:

  • Allow your characters to regroup after battle 1. Where does this leave them concerning their external goals?

  • Consider where this leaves each character in their character arc. Have they moved closer to their internal goal, or further away?

  • How does the outcome of battle 1 affect your sub-plot? Bring these consequences into play before you hit the mid-point.

Want a different sort of prompt? One of your characters cracks open a fortune cookie... πŸ₯ 

Update your running editorial note

At the end of the day make a note of any off-course deviations, potential inconsistencies, areas to research further, or moments of inspiration to revisit when you edit in December/January.
