I don't know if it is the determination to see through my goal of writing at least 500 words every day for the month of May or if it is a sick compulsion that is beginning to take hold, but I am doing it. The drive from Phoenix to Las Vegas was a rather hasty one as there were less cars on the road (it being a Tuesday) than we were used to seeing. Usually, we head home on a Sunday or an occasional Saturday evening and it is much more congested.
Tonight, after unpacking and getting the kids ready for bed, including the compelled reading I am required to do by my son of the book 'Dogman' by a guy named Dav Pilkey. I find the little comics entertaining and I am actually in awe of how Mr. Pilkey can harness and channel a childlike imagination that most of us would envy at this point.
Anyway, I got the writing done. Full disclosure: As I had mentioned a few days ago, I left my MacBook Pro at home for our trip, so I was forced to start a second story (from my outlines on my Google Drive). I found a great one that ended up getting me about 2500 words in. That's all well and good and I think I will be picking it up within a week or two. Currently, as of tonight, I have resumed my original story.
I can't give a lot of details away about what I am writing as I am writing fast and I am writing to get it to publication. It isn't 'perfect' writing, but it is fun writing and storytelling. The stories are set in the past and this particular story I am resuming takes place in California. The one I started while in Phoenix is set in Paris.
Anyway, here's tonight's count--
Daily Starting Word Count: 13 227
Daily Finishing Word Count: 13 756
Daily Word Count: 529
