🏰 Nanowrimo Day 26: Storming the castle

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

Updated over a week ago

This week, your characters are at rock bottom and you have to put them back together again.

What to write today​

Today, you're still writing the finale [41,675–43,342 words]:

  • Battle 3 – Storming the castle: the protagonist re-engages the antagonist. This is the big boss battle. The most challenging confrontation to overcome. Make sure it's epic.

Want a different sort of prompt? Begin a scene with the sentence: "That was the first time [Character Name] killed a man." 😬

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.
