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 writing the finale. Your characters are in crisis [43,342–45,000 words]:

  • Battle 3 – High-tower surprise: give us a twist where the antagonist turns the tables somehow, putting the protagonist on the back foot.

  • Your protagonist needs to dig deep. They know they will have to make a sacrifice to overcome this challenge.

  • Build tension and excitement as they decide to give it their all.

Want a different sort of prompt? One of your characters gets advice from a completely unreliable source, and are convinced to take it. 🫣

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.
