Well, got a little more accomplished. I would have probably went to 7k tonight had I not forgotten my laptop power cord. I have the incredible shrinking battery on the Sony Vaio so I was so concerned with how fast my power was going that I was too distracted to write more than I did. But nonetheless - I'm nearing 6k in two days after well over a year of no writing. Yeah baby! But I doubt I'll do any more for the next two days off because I'll be immersed in other projects that need immediate focus.

I'm going to keep posting any minute accomplishments here though to possibly inspire you folks to get the writer-ball rolling LOL - *waves pom poms*

Ps, nothing snippet worthy. I swear this is all utter crap but I'm loving it.

The writing bug bit me finally. I started yesterday at work since it was Sunday and there were no interruptions in the office. Not bad for less than 8 hours or so.

Pretty much this is one of those novellas that I'm not really going to be proud of. I don't have a clue what I'm talking about for most of it. It wasn't a planned story. I just wanted to write something that personally got my kicks off and that I didn't take seriously at all. These are the types of stories that get people out of writers-block I think ... so it's all good.

Current project: a sci-fi novel with a paranormal twist. And pirates.

It is turning into one long run-on novel, and will be broken up into more than one book eventually, probably after draft #1 is done. I'll have to polish it up a bit to turn it into multiple books with good beginning and ending points. Presently, I have gone through about half of my outlined content/plot ideas. This thing is getting heyoooooge.

End of the week word count goal: 140,000

okay, my mistake. considering i just laid down 430 words with a teensy bit of effort and 45 minutes, maybe i'll up that goal to maybe 500 a day?

ideas ideas ideas.

things to work on.

an outline for a joint project, and something kind of sci-fi, but very low tech. no magic toys for those boys.

1k a week is a little optimistic. how about 500 for now, until i get it rolling.
