Month 2, Day 3 of this Writing in Public challenge.
Day thirteen of the novel Thunder Mountain.
Managed to roll out of bed by 2 p.m. and got in my office by a little before 3 p.m. I did some e-mail, then headed off to get the snail mail, hit two banks on business, and get back to WMG Publishing.
One of the fine folks at WMG has printed off all my book blurbs and I am now in the process of editing them to get them at least up to the level I try to teach in the workshops. (grin) Some of those are pretty old.
I worked on taping a workshop for a few hours, then home by 6:30 p.m. and into the standard nap with Walter White Kitty, dinner, news, dishes, and then back to my office here in the house by 8:30 p.m.
I dinged around with some web site stuff and e-mail until around 9:30 p.m., then moved over to my writing computer and did two sessions with a short break on the novel. Managed about 1,700 words total in the two sessions.
Then a break to watch some television, back up here by 12:30 a.m. and back to writing. I wrote for about 45 minutes to 50 minutes for a session, took a five minute break, then went back at it. By 4:30 a.m I had another 5,600 words done on the novel.
This thing is just smoking along. And once again I thought I knew where I was going and didn’t actually have a clue as things changed suddenly from one minute to the next. Ahh, the fun of writing into the dark. I love this.
So ended up with 7,300 words for the day on the novel. Maybe tomorrow I’ll finish this puppy unless the back of my brain throws me yet another curve.
