Nano 2010 Rebel - The Second Generation

I've decided what to do for Nanowrimo. I'm a rebel, baby! I will update as time goes on.

My goal:
Finish The Second Generation by November 30th. This will consist of about 72 more pages or 4 1/2 16-page POVs. If I average 537 words a page, that's about 38,664 words. Not as much as 50,000, but I don't want to rush this or sacrifice quality, because this novel is awesome right now and I don't want to ruin it. It's not going to be all writing, either. I have some really important things to work out, like the layout and logistics of a village that has a huge role in the story.
