Day 2 is muddled through

Once again, I was unable to write all day until well near 10:00 p.m. For some reason, I was possessed with the desire to fold ALL the laundry. Oh well. At least that's done! We writers need a clean workspace, right?

I found myself incredibly tired tonight, so I got the timer out and did four 10-minute timed writings. By the end of the last one, my body had slid to a nearly completely prone position. Must be time for bed.

It was a good night for the story though. Plot is moving along just fine. I'm anxious for her to get to the circus, and it looks like it should happen in the next section/chapter.

Dali spent this chapter traveling through the trammin station, which turned out to be a sort of train station with these weird pods that hang from a string of electricity like a Japanese lantern. Established her ability to see dreams well. This should be a fun aspect to explore.

I managed to get down 1695 today. I suppose I could go back and write five more words to make it an even 1700. Nia would do that. But me? Well, I'm working on diminishing my OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder), so I think I'll just head out to dreamland myself.

Words to date: 3,851
Words to go: 46,149


  1. Keep up the good work, Mangy! We're cheering you on. :oD


  2. Thanks, Ferns! It's so good to know that friends are cheering on my progress. *hugs!*

  3. How sad- those 5 little words will never know the joy of pushing you to a more even word count! I'm telling you, that is the best way to boost your words!

    Congrats on the words... keep it up!

  4. I knew that would drive you up the wall. That's why I left it. :oP
