After taking yesterday off to spend with friends, I had the troublesome task that I face with any new project when a break occurs: Getting going again.
So I was delighted when I got my goal with relative ease. It was a long enough slog, adding to it in 500-700 word installments, but I’ve reached it. I also spent several hours, having declared it an easy day, not writing. I always jinx myself like that.
But, at the writing of this post, I’m on 2,086 words for the day. Chapter Three us underway and it’s one I didn’t anticipate writing. Likewise, Chapter Two was more detailed and interesting than I expected, doubling in length. This one will most certainly be a short chapter and then Chapter Four is launching the story 28 years into the future, when the murdering and fun really begins. Ariba!
As is always the case, I might end up adding to the word tally for today, depending why my tiredness sets in. I haven’t offset the missed day yesterday but it’s still very close to being that way. If I want to hit my 14,000 loose goal for the week I need another 8,000 words. I’ll be away for the weekend, so I’ve only got tomorrow and Friday to do that. If I manage it… Damn, that’ll feel good.
I’m feeling good about this story and loving where it’s going, so here’s hoping the good feelings keep flying!
