I managed to reach 50 000 words on day 20, and only a small part of that is the blatant word padding that is NaNoWriMo. I'll be continuing the writing, though likely at a slower pace and focusing more on getting the plot moving and developing the world and characters than getting at least 2000 words a day out.
I've had plenty of characters from the very beginning, and apparently I have been more keen on killing them than getting the plot moving. Then again, one could argue that the whole "killing the Emperor's children" (2 down, another 3 waiting in line for the chopping block) is important to the plot.
Ahem. Time to sharpen that ax, me thinks. The sooner they die, the sooner things will get moving.
