Yet another NaNo update

Just popping in for yet another NaNo update. I've just started what would be Part Two of the novel, at which time I expand from two POV characters to four.

Anyway, here's the obligatory progress bar:

40708 / 50000 words. 81% done!

While I'm closing in on 50,000 words I'm nowhere near the end of the first draft of this book. (Having just started Part Two as I mentioned above should be a clear enough indication as to that.) So, I'll keep plugging away. I'm fiddling around with the idea of making my November goal 75,000 words. That won't bring me to the end of draft one either but it should put me on track to finish this backstory novel by the end of December.

That way I can get back to my WIP with the new year.
