Week 4, Day 1: 0 words

Week 4 already. It’s hard to believe I’ve been doing this for so long. But no words today. I am going to see if I can’t at least get the beginning of the science fiction short done today. I need names for him, his car and his boss. Oh and a name for the story too.

Week 3, Day 1: 403 words

Writing was hard today. I started chapter three and I did not want to write. This chapter is a turning point, I think, an early one. I could have done a few different things and not doing them is going to lock in some of the plot. But I am past the hurdle now and I am not going to go back and edit and change anything. At least not until the whole thing is over. That is not what this experiment is about.

Anyway I wrote more than 400 words and I am happy about that.

Week 2, Day 1: 0 words

No words! 😦 I am very bad! Very upset, too. I would be happier if I could have written at lease 50 words, if not the full 200. But, no, all I managed were two words: Chapter 2. Which doesn’t really count. And I still have no idea what I am going to call the stone.

I decided to use my spare time for researching our fall Orlando vacation rather than using that time to write. But she is going to see her father in the next scene and I got some ideas about that.

Week 1, Day 1: 400 pages

400 pages today. I met and exceeded my 200 words a day goal. 🙂 Yah! I am off to a good start.

My protagonist just obtained something she shouldn’t have. How, I have no idea. I should probably figure that out soon, otherwise it will undoubtedly come back and bit me on the ass. She is running and it’s raining heavily.

Not bad for today, even if I don’t have a name for her yet. Not sure what kind of name would suit her. Something not that girly, I don’t think, but probably a little dramatic.  Maybe I could name her for a weed, a pretty one that’s imposable to get rid off. Possibly a carnivorous plant. Hmm. I like the carnivorous plant idea.
