6084 Words

Not quite the ten thousand I was aiming for, but not too bad.  I don't think I've ever written this much in one sitting.  Twelve hours.  I wrote through lunch.  Took a shower and a dinner break but most importantly, really got to know my characters in ways I hadn't before.  And they did some things I hadn't expected.  Now, it seems we're going on a road trip together, which was not anticipated.  Funny how things work out.  I'm usually a plotter, but it seems my velour pants are working a new kind of magic.

Thanks for your encouragement.  I'll be flying all morning, so I thought I should post an update before bed.  Gotta be up in a few hours.

Good night all!

That's a whole lot of writing that is now behind you instead of in front of you. Good job on seizing the opportunity rather than moaning about the inconvenience.

Also, I am a fellow crusader, and look forward to getting to know you better. You are certainly welcome to visit My Comfy Chair as well. Do say Hello if you stop by.

Velour pants?

6k is an impressive number.

Not sure I want to know about what kind of magic your velour pants are working.

Tara - It's funny how stories take on a life of their own at times. I like to think I control everything, but more and more I'm losing it.

Hey Ben - I've wasted days like that in the past. As exhausting as it was I feel a great sense of accomplishment.

Tina - Dude, where have you been? Velour is all the rage. Do I need to post pics of myself in each color?

Holly - Thank you.

Jeanne - You know my magic better than most.
