10-Oct-09 10:44pm 2,810 I'm (sort of) finished! I reached the end (and it's just soooo tenderhearted) (which probably means I need to cut it, LOL), but I don't really feel "finished" until I go back and fix all the things I meant to all along. Like weaving two new POV characters who appeared in the middle of the book. And making the setting a character in the story.

But still, I'm pumped!

5-Oct-09 10:48pm 1,100 Also wrote a short synopsis for another MS and got sucked into reading about 40 pgs from another old MS of mine. And read through two chaps from a CP. AND I played with my kids a bunch. 57,100

1-Oct-09 10:21pm 700 Sigh. Slow night--went to a local storytelling club for some fun imagery exercises, though. That's writerly, right? 52,100
30-Sep-09 11:02pm 1,200 Someone. Just. Died. 51,400
29-Sep-09 10:25pm 2,000 Someone's about to die!! Woohoo!

Also came up with a new story idea today. Juggling that one versus the other one I was going to work on next. Also thinking about decreasing my goal. Am I about 2/3s of the way through my story? I hope I'm not too much further--but I'm not sure what I'm going to do for the next 25k words. Oy.

On the other hand, I just got 5k words out of 15 minutes of storytime (4 different concurrent storylines).

Gah. We'll just see.
