I'm at 1715, but, that's with an asterisk. I'd already written about 1050 words to start my book (ages ago), so this is really only less than 700 new words. But I did re-work my prologue, and I'm a little bit happier with it - I know you aren't supposed to edit/re-write but I need to have my first "page" done and polished for my next writing workshop in a couple weeks, so I'm going to be fussing with it until then.

I ended up not having to work as much yesterday as I expected, so I got more words in than I thought I would. I continue my tradition of puttering around in the beginning, but I think I might get to some scenes where I know where I'm going today. Fingers crossed that happens!
I managed to write about 1700 words last night before almost falling asleep on my computer. I'm definitely still in the introduction phase, but the really interesting pieces should start in the next day or two.
I just passed 3000 and I need to do 1000 more tonight.
My main character is already turning into a different person than I thought she was. It's so funny how, when I'm writing, some part of my brain just takes the wheel and doesn't consult the conscious, plan-making part, lol.
I had an idea about how to hide/handle the relationship between my two main characters in a dream last night! LOL! It will be tricky to work out, because if I do it poorly it could go off the rails and seem really contrived, but if I do it well it will add to the punch of my big reveal. Auggh!
I'm already behind I had a really bad morning sickness day yesterday and could barely function. I knew it was going to be a struggle but damn! Hoping to get at least 4-5k words tomorrow to get a little ahead. I don't work Fridays, so I've been planning on using them to write all day long.
