Mood: satisfied

Yesterday's word count: 4615
Total word count: 10003
Should be at: 5000
Variance: +5003

Note: this word count is from yesterday (Sun. 11/2), but "should be at" and "variance" refers to today.

Somehow I managed to write like a motherfucker yesterday and I made it to 10000 words. Word-wise, I'm far ahead of where I need to be, and my story seems to be developing a plot. This is very exciting.

I don't think I mentioned it in my last entry... I was originally planning to finish up last year's novel, but on Saturday I was sitting and trying to write and the words wouldn't come. I was getting frustrated and finally decided to write whatever came into my head. Apparently that's this story. I'm actually really pleased with it so far. For a change it's not YA - instead it's urban fantasy. Well, sort of urban. There are witches, psychics, werewolves, and vampires, but it takes place in this world. Think a less pornographic Laurell K. Hamilton (and a much shorter Kim Harrison) and you should get the idea.

Plan for today: do Stats homework, finish Russian homework, revise Russian Drama paper, write 2000 words. Then tonight while I'm at work I'll try to write some obnoxiously large amount of words. We'll see how that goes.

Man, I'm envious of your word count. I'm just sort of scraping by today with my goal because I didn't have time and now I'm too tired. Go you!!

Psh, any words are better than none... I just happen to be giving up my life for my novel. Oh well, writing = life apparently.

Thanks though :)
