I managed to get nearly 2500 words into the book today. You can check my progress here on the page with the NaNoWriMo Widget on the top right of the page. SO far I have written the Prologue which takes place in modern times right at the beginning of the Red Sun Millennia. Half my time writing tonight was busy with research and terminology. The entire book will have a lot to do with steam trains and so I am not only researching the names for stuff, but how it works, history, names, places, etc. It is going to have a steampunk feel to the book and I have chosen the A4 (the most beautiful of all steam engines in my opinion) to star up front in the Prologue.
