I couldn't stand it...

I just couldn't bear to miss two nights in a row, so I sat down and did a few. 577 to be exact. It's not a lot, but it is further toward the goal, so that's okay. Plus, it got me to 33,000. (it's actually more like 30,006 words, but I rounded down to make it nice and even. Not that it matters, of course, but I'm just strange. lol

So anyway, I actually managed to write a little today. It feels good to write. I missed it yesterday. I miss the story when I don't work on it. I miss the characters. I sometimes wish these characters could jump off the screen/page and live actual lives. I like them so much, I'd definately hang out with them, lol. I can't decide if that makes me really insane or just eccentric, as all writers should be.


  1. Wanting to hang out with your characters means you're on the right track. Good for you!

  2. Thanks Devon. You know, this is the most I've ever written on one story and it's amazing what's happening! Characters I didn't plan keep popping up, and subplots I had no idea about are emerging. It's the coolest thing! I know now what Stephen King was talking about in Misery when he described the "hole in the page that opens up and reveals the story as you're writing it."
