It's happened amigos! I've finally gotten to the point in writing book 2 where the words just seem to flow. Since I'm a pantser and don't outline, I usually don't gain momentum until I've finished various key scenes. Yesterday, I was able to get in 4,889 words! Now that I have the important chapters out of the way, I think I'll be able to get more words in by the end of the month.
I could have squeezed in another 2k last night, but I spend the evening chatting with my new author friend, Martha Bourke, who's new YA book, Jaguar Sun, I can't wait to get my hands on! She has a whole new take on shapeshifters and the December 12, 2012 Mayan prophecy.
After meeting Martha, I came to the realization that I love what I do! Being a writer, you meet the most wonderful people and everyone goes out of their way to help each other out. Maybe it's just an indie thing, but it's refreshing to be in a profession where authors help out other authors. I guess that's why I love being a part of ROW80, it's not only a challenge, but a way for writers to support each other.
I hope everyone has a great writing week!
