NaNoWrMo and stubborn characters
Back in November I participated in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWrMo). I completed my 50,000 words and was the first one to finish out of my competitors (AKA my friends). However, NaNo did not give me enough time to complete my work of art. I have been forced to cease writing because my characters are being stubborn. NONE of them will talk to me and tell me what to do. no one wants to die, no one wants the war to end. They're all being stubborn, and Ash knows what that is like. I am now stuck with several problems; What to call my characters, their names are getting so boring; and when one of then should die.
