This month I have already written 26,302 words, which is a goodly chunk over my 25K goal. And I still have 7 more writing days to go!
Flare now sits at a hefty 51,990 words. I’m now in the second act, wherein my heroes have regrouped to make a push at solving their rather massive problem. They think they have a good plan–they’re even feeling cautiously optimistic for once–but they have no idea what I have in store for them.
Cue the maniacal laughter.
My rule is: what could go wrong, does.
In other news, I cleaned my desk.
Why is this a big deal? Well, I realized I was subconsciously avoiding my writing space. I’d pause at the study, frown at the clutter, then keep walking past. I’d write on the couch, my bed, or the kitchen table. Now I’m a big proponent of Have Laptop, Will Write Anywhere, but there’s something to be said about having a space of one’s own, with notes and pens and scrap paper within reach.
And all it took to reclaim the space was five minutes of stacking and putting away. I’m happier and the words flow better.
In other other news, the daughter had her very first riding lesson.
So it begins.
And that’s my midweek. How’s yours treating you?
