I had two simple goals this morning.
Get up. (Don’t laugh.) Friday mornings are hard for me to do D&E. I made it, but only by going to bed before 10 last night. I didn’t watch Survivor because I was doing some stuff for the Evil Day Job. I didn’t watch the debate because I was putting the monsters to bed and then wrote a bit.
Write 500 words. (Again, don’t laugh.) I know 1K for a D&E session is more than doable, but for whatever reason, I’ve only been getting a few hundred words this week. New scene, new POV character, etc. all valid excuses, but come ON. I need some major wordage here.
I made both goals! Total scene length: 1676 and it’s finished.
I decided last night that I only get to do NaNoWriMo if I finish these revisions. I really don’t think I can get the whole book revised in a month. I need around 40K in new words and probably 15K of the existing draft needs some serious work. About 40K of it hasn’t even been edited once. *dies*
It sure would be lovely to participate again and get some nice wordage completed on Return to Shanhasson though… Dharman and Sal have begun to clamor along with Gregar now, which I suppose is only to be expected. After all, they really want to nag Shannari.
We’ll see. I really doubt it’s humanly possible to do a decent 2nd draft this month, but Sal is eagerly offering all sorts of assistance.
