Stuff: You may not believe this but I’m actually a few thousand words ahead because I just kept typing last night. Of course, I’m now going to read through to make sure some of it at least makes sense.

I think it’s gotten easier because I now have scenes popping up in my head in a series rather than me sitting at the computer and pulling word by word from a stingy word vault.

Observation: I’m almost frightened to go back and look at the two previously posted days because the typos in this one were so bad…and I’m sure there might be more.

So, you probably noticed that I didn’t write yesterday. It might have been a good thing because I came up with a direction to go in. Yippeee!

Update: I will try to write another passage for today so that I can closer to where I should be, but a cup of tea and sustenance are in order.

Disclaimer: A draft! Maybe a very bad draft! 🙂 Read at your own risk.

Total word count: 18046

for yesterday I would have been behind by: 291. If I don’t write anymore today, I’ll be behind by: 1958.
