If I don’t get any writing done tonight, I will end January 7,000 words ahead of the game, because I managed to do over 12,000 this month. That’s 7,000 more than my goal of 5,000. Can I get a “what what!!” So, February starts tomorrow, with the goal of another 5,000 words. I hope to surpass that like WHOA because I will have one week of no Aidan (will be with his grandmother in Aurora OH) or Chris (Phoenix AZ), then one week of no Aidan (still with grandmother). That means if I clean the house, it will STAY clean, and I will have all the time to simply focus on my writing. And reading. Woo. I’m looking forward to it, but most importantly, looking forward to continue to get to know my new characters.
Last night/this morning, I finally got off of the computer at a little bit after one. But I didn’t get to bed until around 1:35 because I kept coming up with ideas! I did the smart thing–kept a notepad by my bed and jotted them down. ‘Cause you know how you swear you’ll remember, then you never do? I didn’t want that to happen. Now I have loads of notes! Yay. I’m also thinking of getting one of those micro-cassette recorders for when I come up with things while I’m in the car. I tried the pad/pen thing. You know how the traffic lights always work against you: they stay red when you’re in a hurry or excited, and they all turn green when you want to stop for whatever reason. I don’t really mind if I’m kept awake with ideas. That’s a blessing, something not to be taken for granted.
That’s all for now.
