Yep, I finally managed to complete my 50,000+ words for the month of November. I had meant to sit down for 3 sessions today, but ended up not getting any writing done at all. Then I sat down at around 6 pm and knocked out around 5000 words. And it was actually a really good stopping place. There are several more scenes I want to add. I kind of left out about two years of that little boy’s life. My plan is to have that novel be about the first five years of his life, then write the next one encompassing his growing up years. Hey, it’s good to have a plan, right?
I feel a sense of accomplishment and, yes I’ll admit it, relief that I finished. A big sigh of relief. Now maybe I can clean my house. Because when you’re working so many hours six days a week, then writing almost every night, something has to give. For me, that was housework. So I have some catching up to do. Too bad I didn’t do a better job training those crazy cats to clean house. They may not be much on housework, but they do like their basketball…Scout joined me watching the big game last night. And yes, for any of you out of touch with college basketball…the Indiana Hoosiers won once again! Oh yeah!
