I slept in this morning, so I didn’t have any words until late (after work). Luckily, we took the kids to the community center to swim tonight after dinner. I sat out by the cafe with my laptop and got 1.5K words, and finally hit the other 500 tonight. (My goal was to break 12K.)
I’m still following my outline pretty well, but a few things popped up today that were surprising, including a tattoo and a zombie. Woot! I love zombies. However, I’m not really sure this last scene is working very well. It’s not happening quite like I expected, which would be okay…as long as it’s not boring. I’m too tired to tell.
A decent day, though, and nothing I can’t fix in revision.
