Well, I had today off work…never a bad thing..and today it was a really good thing. Gorgeous weather, right around 75 degrees, breezy, sunny…perfect weather. I stayed up a little late last night and ended up sleeping in until 7…whew…that’s really sleeping in for me. I sat down at my desk to check up on my friends while I ate breakfast, then decided to write a little on my novel before I had to go run some errands. Managed to get in about 500 words before I had to head out.
After I got back home, I fixed lunch and sat down and watched “Days” (I know, I know…) then decided to do a little more writing. I ended up doing 3 separate sessions today and got in 3254 words!!! Really! So I’m up to 12,589 words after 5 days. I’m pretty excited about that. And today’s writing was fun. Kind of weaving some of the background info of some of the older characters (really, I guess these folks are the parents of the main characters) into the story. Working more on developing some of the descriptive scenes in the story. Dialogue comes easily to me, sometimes to the detriment of the scenes, I think. So I’m really trying to add a little more description to my story. We’ll see how that goes…
I’ve been communicating with the ladies in my cabin…everyone’s very encouraging and supportive…it’s nice to have a small group to share the writing woos and woes with (I know, I’m such a dork…). I mean, the people I work with have a mild interest in what I’m doing, but the ladies in my cabin are trying to accomplish the same thing that I’m working on…kind of cool~
All in all, a nice, productive, peaceful day…ahh…
