NaNoWriMo Eureka!

So Much This.
Not a whole lot of time right now, because NaNoWriMo is eating my soul, but I had a wonderful time brainstorming my NaNovel on The Roundtable Podcast with my podio-bro Dave Robeson, podio-papa Justin Macumber, and the glorious Alethea Kontis. Look for that episode to drop on Christmas Day!

That said, I just had a moment of synthesis I completely didn't expect at the end of the second scene, which I'm almost finished with. It's one of those moments where you're like, "Crap, I've written myself into a corner", but then you think of something that lets you drag in another bit of the story you'd already planned and seed it for the next scene, and you feel like a complete genius, even though no one will probably ever know. Which is good. Because then they'll think you're a genius too and not realize it was basically a secret, unplanned escape route that just happened to work.


What were some surprising moments of genius you've had writing? Have you had that on your NaNoWriMo project this year? How's it going?
