NaNoWriMo is over, but the writing goes on · 1:12am Dec 4th, 2016

November has come and gone, and while I've written 57,000 words for "Extracts" ( https://docs.google.com/document/d/1jPU6QKEohcrw6l6O3SxorIxf2Tnq54h36LtQO6Qv86w/edit ), I haven't finished writing the story. I had a bit of a hiatus due to yet another bout of depression, but I wrote a couple of hundred words two days ago, around eight hundred yesterday, and I think I'm close to being in full form for today's writing. I also have the plot worked out for the rest of the novel, with plenty of room for improvisation as I think of extra fillips.

One thing I'm not satisfied with is the title itself. It's good enough as a placeholder, in that I've formatted the novel as extracts from a journal of a protagonist whose mind was extracted from their body, but it doesn't really describe any of the story's core themes. If you've got any thoughts on a better title, I'd be more than happy to read them, here or at the GDoc. :)

I'm sorry to hear about your depression :-(

As for possible titles, maybe Unboxing could work? Since the main character is trying to, essentially, escape the box she found herself in?

Or maybe Nested Minds? Oh, oh!! Percentage Drift!

I can have more suggestions if you want them :-P
