I do not like the alarm going off at 7am (although this morning I woke up at 6:49), but I do very much like being up in the morning and getting exercise. Dang nab it. :)
I got 1400 words before lunch and was very pleased with myself. Then I came back from lunch, sat down to start the next scene, and realized I had no idea what to do with it. A look at the synopsis suggested I’d completely screwed up the scene I’d written before lunch, so I had to throw out half of what I’d written and do it all over. *sigh* So I wrote about 3K today, only 2K of which counted. Argh. (On the other hand, at least I noticed after about six pages, instead of sixty, which would have been much, *much* worse.)
I keep thinking I have things to blog about, and then forgetting whatever the topic was when I sit down to actually blog. Actually now that I think about it, that happens a lot when I’m writing a book, doesn’t it?
