Well after yesterday’s sucky all day migraine, I wound up churning out 1623 words during sprints with Claire, who, incidentally, also finished her EPIC BATTLE SCENE that concludes ACT I. We are both rock stars and have earned a synchronized viewing of Serendipity, with large bowls of popcorn, at our earliest convenience. There will probably be live tweeting. LOOK OUT WORLD!
I actually woke up this morning almost EXCITED to get back to my WIP. Please note, true excitement does not happen before 10 in the morning, not even Christmas Day (sadly, proof that I am a grown up). I just finished up Chapter 7 and the Midpoint is COMING UP–I am truly excited about that. It’s going to be EPIC. Sometime this weekend I should get to The Kiss, which, in itself will be just…OMG (this is way more exciting in YA than adult stuff, I’ve noticed). Y’all, I actually have A MIDDLE. I mean obviously, but if you had any idea how HARD I used to find the middle, you’d understand what this MEANS. I’m a reformed pantser, yo?
And, um…it’s looking like now it might be longer than 85k too…like closer to 95-100k. o.O I don’t know. Maybe the second half will wind up having shorter scenes. Maybe not. I’m just writing the darn book and it will be what it will be. I don’t feel like there’s a lot of needless fluff or unnecessary info. It’s just winding up as…MORE than I originally expected. Everything about this book is MORE for me. I just hope I do it justice.
In other, I want to do a conga line news, I am down THREE WHOLE POUNDS, which officially tips beyond the “Oh it’s probably just water weight” threshold into actual progress. YEEHA! Six pounds to go to reach last year’s low and fit back into the Capri pants!
Boss is back from D.C. today, so I must go scramble and play catch up.
