If you do what you have always done, you will get what you have always had.

Word count is coming right along. I did over 4,000 words yesterday and 1,348 today. I'm finding I get more words if I do 500-700 at a time with non-writing activities in between. Since I'm working five days this week, it's a useful observation. It's also handy that WriteItNow has a notes section so when I think of something I need to research I can make a note and get back to it. I think the best thing about this book is that I've incorporated a lot of things that I wanted to know about anyway. If my main character was a real person, I'd want to hang out with her.

Now that I have words in, I think I'll go downstairs and putter in the kitchen. 6:30 is way too early to go to bed.

I took yesterday off. By the time I got home from Dudleys Rush rehearsal I was too fried to write. It was nice to have a day off, but I had to do over 4,000 words today to catch up. Today was the biggest writing day I've had in a long while. Breaking it into chunks helped a lot.

I also went grocery shopping, baked a cake, and helped Vicky cook dinner today. I think I'm going to do a little research and call it a day. Or maybe I'll go see if anyone wants to sit in the hot tub with me.
