She blogs!

That's right, folks, I'm back. After various bouts of funk, overwork (day job), undersleep, family time or compensation for lack thereof, household chores, and social obligations, I am finally settling down to start seriously writing again. My goal of 25K (total word count) by next Tuesday still stands.

As of today I had 6 days to write about 8,000 words. Tonight I got 800. Not bad, really, since I spent half my allotted writing time choreographing with my DH and brother (both black belts; I only almost got to brown) the 3-on-1 fight scene that I then wrote. Hooray for the caffeine in Sunkist.

I know a few people who will be doing NaNoWriMo starting next week, and if they can get 50K in a month, I think I can get 8K in 6 days, and possibly at least 25K next month. I have to break out of my mindset of perfecting the first draft, and just get Words On Paper. I can revise and refine once I have the bones of the story down. We'll see how it goes.
