I said this on Twitter: some days the words just roll out like a dream. That was today.
I wrote over lunch and promptly forgot to eat.
As soon as I finished the Evil Day Job, I started again instead of cooking dinner. Ooops. We had to eat out once That Man got home. (Not entirely a bad thing of course! Yum–and no dishes.)
I’m paying for it now with an eye-strain headache and sore wrists, but it was a very rare, fabulous writing day. So far, the story is going EXACTLY like I planned. I can’t stop thinking about it. I see it all so clearly that I can hear the characters…I don’t want to lose that before I can capture the words.
Total for the day: 3,782
Grand total: 5,175 words
And I’m still tinkering with the file.
