Well I set myself the goal of 5k this week. As of last night, I’m on the nose at 3k with today, tomorrow, and Sunday left to go. I don’t have much hope of getting a whole lot done today, as it’s Halloween, my boss is back from Chicago, and I have actual paying work to do. But there’s still Saturday and Sunday. I know what comes next–well, mostly. I’ve got a scene with my villain to start today–when I go home in a bit for lunch, I hope. Then there’s a scene with the hero and his mentor, and I don’t quite know how that’s going to go yet. And after that, the first date with the heroine. I’m pretty clear on that. I’m getting into the more fun parts of the story again, and I feel like I’m finally crawling out of my rut.
Things have been moving along smoothly this week, hampered only by the fact that I have, at last, fallen prey to The Black Dagger Brotherhood and plowed through the first 2 books in 3 days. It’s probably a good thing that I’m having to wait on my friend to mail me the rest of them. There’s no telling what I would put off to read right now. But hey, how long has it been since I’ve read a book that was sufficiently good to induce me to drop everything? Yeah–long damn time. One thing I have noticed about these books is that they are very very, unabashedly herocentric. And I have absolutely no problem with that as a reader. It’s something I’ve been wondering about because Til Death is very much Wyatt’s story, and he has far more scenes than Marin. Shrug. It is what it is. I just have to write it to the best of my ability and then go from there.
NaNo starts tomorrow, and the 70 Days of Sweat on the 10th. I’m not exactly primed, but I’m feeling steady on my feet and ready to write.
