A Sad Start

So far out of the five days of writing I am three behind. In the past few days it has been hard for me to find the time to write, but I have not given up. I have a lot of catchup to do and my goal is to be ahead of schedule by sunday night. I'm able to write a little at lunch every day and a little more when I get home at night. This weekend I'm going to write like my final term paper is due on Monday.

So far nothing of the little I have posted is worth putting up here. Maybe this weekend I'll put an excerpt.

Wish me luck. It looks like I am really going to need it.

Off to a (good?) start

First night of writing and I have reached 1580 words before nodding off. My goal for weekends is 3500 each day, so I am still way short for the day, but as today is still tomorrow for me, I guess I got a headstart. This 1580 took me about 2.5 hours, so if I can write that speed every session I'll be pretty happy.

Also, no cheating. I don't have names with more than one word yet, and I haven't added a talking parrot in the background or anything. Maybe those will happen in the third week when I begin to realize I won't make it without em. :-)

How you guys doing the 24 hour write out can do it I have no clue. I'd be history by now, even if I were making my coffee with Mt. Dew instead of water. Oh well, Dainn and the caravan to Westing can wait until tomorrow to be down for the night.
