Woke up and wrote some...

I didn't write anything all day and my characters were ticked off at me. Nagging buggers. I ignored them all day as I was cooking, cleaning, doing laundry, job searching, yapping away, mothering, and finally when I was snuggling down in my covers ready for sleep, sleep did not come. Nope. My characters wouldn't stop whining, "Write you lazy ol' woman! Novelists, write! And you have to write about me, me, me!" Grr. And yet, how I love them. They dragged me out of bed and got me writing (about them of course) and before the clock struck 12 and my carriage turned into a pumpkin, I actually wrote 1,000 words. Woohoo. 6,500 words to go to get to my first challenge of 42,000 words before the end of October.

  1. That proves you need to be careful of what you ask for. Their timing is never good. Keep napkins (or a notebook if you must) in your car. I've found myself in a random parking lot so many times, needing to get the ideas down before they disappear.
