Character Catch Up

I probaby should be focused on my novel as I write this post. But I felt the need for a little reality here. I posted 5033 words this morning and have wrote about a 100 more. Before I return to Macon’s world, my main character’s life in jail, I wanted to share my experience so far. This writing challenge seems, as of right now, doable. Though I do get stalled once in a while as my character decides what he will do, say, or see next. Right now he’s taking a long, well, piss, sorry folks fits with the story.

As many of you probably experience yourselves, I had a plan yesterday to get some writing done after work that was blown when I ended up watching the little one, a four month old cutie, who required my devoted attention. I realize now my life, as do my charcaters, will get thrown a couple of curve balls and I will have to adjust.

I’ll do my best to keep up the 1667 word count daily but sometimes I have to wait for Macon and his friends, or enemies, to decide what their doing so I can share it with 50,000 words by November 30th, if I share it at all.

So on this third day of writing madness I have come to appreciate the end. Meaning I will have a complete first draft of a novel, not like the almost finshed or just started versions of other stories I have benched on my desktop.

This already feels good!

My dream is to become a professional bullshit artist. Or, as others prefer to call them, a novelist. I know, a highly unoriginal and unattainable goal. What's my back-up plan? Ninja fairy. Here's to being disgustingly unoriginal!
