Would it be rude to just upload a picture of ‘my numbers’? 😉 I woke up at 4 this morning, completely obsessed with this story. I stayed in bed brainstorming for another hour, trying to remember my ideas by attaching them to easy to remember words or abbreviations like SMS (which stood for strap-on, manly and self-sabotage.) 😉 I finally did get up around 5 and made some notes on my computer in order not to forget.
I’m very much a morning person, but I draw the line at getting up before the frogs stop croaking and the birds start whistling, so after making my notes I went back to bed to hug my wife (which basically equals waking her up.) (But because of this interview at Women & Words we all know she wants to be ‘fit for forty’ so she had to get up anyway to catch an early ferry and hit the gym before work!) 😉
I ended up having an excellent writing day, producing 7000 new words, bringing my manuscript to 21.000 words. (This time last week it was at 0 words, so I’m very happy with how this first draft is progressing.)
Tomorrow is another full writing day, so I’ll check back in. I have to say, though… when I came up with this plan to write a blog post at the end of every writing day, I did not know I was going to totally fry my brain with 7000 words days!
