Month 3, Day 1 of this Writing in Public challenge.
Day twelve of the new novel called Against Time.
And yup, I am doing this into month #3.
I rolled out around 2 p.m. and around 3 p.m. did some e-mail, then off to the snail mail and then WMG Publishing offices. There I worked on workshop stuff and talked with Jerimy from WMG on books for a book signing at Powell’s Bookstore in Portland he was working on and M.L. Buchman, the bestselling writer who had stopped by.
I got home around 6:30 p.m. for the standard nap, dinner, but instead of doing dishes like normal and getting to work, I ended up on the phone for well over an hour with family.
So got going on homework by 9 p.m. and then up to the WMG office around 10 p.m. Neighbors must really wonder what I am doing coming and going at such a late hour. Sort of like I am back playing professional poker again, but alas I am not.
I got home at midnight and Kris and I headed for the basement to watch The Voice and then I came back up here and dinged around on mailing out homework assignments and stuff until 2:30 a.m. before I went over to my writing computer. Very distracted for the second day in a row.
I still managed 2,150 words on the novel. And I have no idea how. I did it in two sessions with a very short break, typing as fast as I could because I knew if I slowed down I’d be too tired to continue. I really, really need to start figuring out where and how this book will end. Maybe tomorrow or Thursday.
So a busy day today with a lot of stuff, but not much writing.
