Today's word count: 1692
Total word count: 1692
Should be at: 1667
No excuses: I don't have a very good reason for not writing much today. Needless to say, I doubt I'll be aiming for 5000 words a day... but going for 1667 is still perfectly reasonable. Previous experience indicates that I generally seem to start off pretty slowly, but within a few days my daily word counts usually increase. Maybe that'll happen this month. I hope so.
The story is starting out kind of blandly, but that's okay, I guess. It's the action later on--and the characterization--that's key for a good novel. Plus, I have a total kickass villain, so that should be fun to write... if I ever get to that point...
By the way, my new icon consists of my hand and part of one of my outlines. I know you care.
Quote of the Day:
He was simply a limb of the world, he thought, a tiny, two-legged limb that grows and loves and lives and dies, and he began to realize that all that mattered right then was the present, and everything else was utterly insignificant and unimportant.
