Month 2, Day 1 of this Writing in Public challenge.
Day eleven of the novel Thunder Mountain: A Romance.
Stayed up last night far, far too late again. Far too late, meaning the sun was well up before I went to bed.
Managed six or so hours of sleep, which is not something that makes me chipper. Crawled out at 1 p.m. By 2 p.m. I was headed through the summer vacation traffic to the standard Sunday writers lunch. A small group this week because so many were out of town or doing holiday stuff.
Back to WMG Publishing and working on workshops by 4 p.m.
This first day of the month is the cross-over period for me, and the September workshops sort of snuck up on me. So I had a ton to do today on workshops. And I do mean a ton.
Home by 6 p.m. for a much-needed nap, then dinner and news, then back to work on workshop stuff in my office here until around 10 p.m., then back up to WMG offices until after midnight.
Got home, took a break, then back at the workshop stuff, finally getting it all done about 2:30 a.m. Now that’s a long day. Very glad that doesn’t happen very often. In fact, this was the worst so far because I had let a few things slip and had to catch it all up today. (grin)
So finally to my writing computer by 2:30 a.m. and I actually managed in two sessions to get 1,850 words done. After today, that’s a complete success.
Now stand by for tomorrow. The decks look clear. We shall see. Now I’m going to bed early.
