As you will soon see, my word counts jump in the evenings and night. I am mostly a night writer. It was a busy day...got lots done...but the evenings are for writing. My sacred time. Where the words flow out in endless streams of fun. I have to admit that these first two thousand words did not come as quickly as they have in the past. I think the planning is holding me back a bit. I was worried this would happen. I did a bit of brainstorming this evening and have come up with some chapter headings. This will help me to have a bit of a path to fill in. I'm also making a point to do better tracking of things this year. I'm keeping a spreadsheet of things "to do", scenes, and my daily word counts so that I can pace to have 90K - 100K by mid December. I'm looking forward to seeing how much I can write tonight...but first I need to get some dinner. Chinese Food...Yum!!!
