Total words: 8,927
A follow-up from yesterday's whine: the one good thing about NaNo and a story that's meandering in the wrong direction, is you can write five versions of things and count them all in the word count, then pick the one you like best in December.
At least you can by my rules.
But now, a question for anyone who's read this far: I need a name for my spirit beings. I can't call them spirits, djinn, fae(ries), angels, demons, goblins, ghouls, ghosts, etc, because they aren't any of those things, and they are all of those things. But they still need a name, something they might use to refer to themselves. And as much as I try to just "make up a name", made-up names sound lame. So I was thinking, if I could usurp a lesser-known word actually used for similar legendary creatures, that would be cool.
