Let the Writing Commence!

NaNoWriMo is upon me, and I am relishing in it's effects. It's not even 9:30 and I have already hit my word goal for today. I've managed almost 2,000 wirds in less than 2 hours. Quite a feat, considering how many times I have stopped for post-haloween candy handouts, and juice calls. I'm not done for the day however, and I am happy to report that the words and subsequent story are flowing like a river.

I've taken a break so I can think about what I want to do next, which is bring the main character's husband into the light. He's been introduced, via the background of how they are at the point they are now, but he's pulling into the pier soon, and he will step off the boat.

For those who are wondering, Halloween was a success for me and the kids. Lots of candy to be had, and despite my diet, I have, overall, refrained from gouging myself of lovely treats. 4 pieces over all -- not bad considering the number of Mounds bars and Kit Kats there are in the house!

We ran out of candy after 2 hours last night! It was weird. I bought more candy than I ever have, and it was gone faster than I ever remember. Hubby says it was insane while I was out with the girls. I don't doubt it because after I got home and gave out candy, it was gone in 20 minutes. Lotsa people like Navy Housing for a reason! LOL

Well, back to the writing. I have a couple hours before I get Em ready for school, and I still gotta go get mom for laundry day. *sigh*

Real life sucks when you are trying to write a book.
