Wow. Talk about setting your intention when you wake up! One of the first things to cross my mind this morning was how I’d really love to write 5000 words today. I’ve been writing consistently for the past week or so, but work and travel have kept me from having a nice, long stretch of time to really get into it. I hadn’t hit my goal of 2000 for a little while. I told Unka J yesterday that I’ve been writing in fits and starts, but what it feels like is sh#ts and farts. 😉 I knew there was more there, but I’ve been feeling, shall we say, backed up.
After a nice, cool, rainy Saturday afternoon, I just finished 5089 words! That was in the form of several shorter scenes, not what I usually do but it fits this stage of the story. I can really feel the home stretch of this one, and I might even make it before the end of the month and the start of Camp NaNoWriMo. I think the characters are aware I’m going to turn my full attention to revising Hand Me Downs as my Camp project. They seem to want to tell me their story while they have such a good opportunity. I say bring it on!
And I also say it is AMAZING how much better I feel after so much… OK, I’ll say it, such a great movement. Yeah, I’m a little giddy and silly. Can’t wait to see what the next couple of days bring. After I get some sleep!
