Today’s the day

130 fiction words, 396 total words

I’m nervous and excited and anxious to just get on with it. Traveling is fun, and driving long distances by myself isn’t something I often get to do. It’ll be a hard weekend (driving 700 miles one direction to flip around and do the same drive back the next day), but who cares! I’ll rest when I return.

130 fiction words, 396 total words

Something I forgot to mention yesterday is that I got paid! I mean, not a ton, but I was quite excited. (Paid from my writing, to be clear.) So I’ll finally have some income to report at the end of the month. *squee*

There’s nothing else to say. I reported most of yesterday last night, then wrote those few words up there while watching a movie (should have focused on writing). Tonight, I drive.

Woo!

Pack animals!

So I’m trying to squeeze this post in quickly before I need to leave for the morning. The post title refers to my WIP (work in progress) – 001 (Space Cats from Space Earth). I think I’m getting close to sorting out what the real problem is, although I still don’t know what the problem is to the brothers in my story. (Four of them.) I’m sure it’ll come to me soon.

Yesterday I managed 394 blog words in two posts, and 369 fiction words. When I told my daughter I wish my story was going faster so I could get to the publishing point faster, she told me then I should write more.

That is, of course, exactly what I need to do.

So far this year I’ve written 7,161 fiction words and 2,870 blog words. That’s a bit over 10,000 words total, and I’m pretty proud of that. It’s 4,000 more words than I had last year at this time, and now looking at those numbers, I think I need to combine my tracking into one file so I can easily compare last year to this one.

Yay, numbers!

Hopefully everyone has a fabulous day, and they get lots of what they want to accomplished.
