The writing is going....well?

It is, actually.

I phrased it as a question because I'm churning out a lot of words. I'm ahead of where I planned to be in terms of number of writing days and words written per day. I'm closing in on the 10K mark. My limit is 15K. I have told maybe half the story!!!

There will eventually be lots of red pen and removing of words. I will have to jump time. I will have to make each word count. That's not a bad thing. It's a very good exercise for me, but gah!!

Now that I've gotten better acquainted with my two heroes, I'm working backwards from the end. I'm writing all the scenes no matter how choppy or crappy they come out, so that they're there. I can fix and tidy up or delete them as needed once I have the full picture.

So, yeah, fun times. I'm only being slightly sarcastic there because I'm actually having fun with the story and enjoying the flow of words and of creation.

As of the writing of this post (Wednesday morning), the Stars have a 96% chance of making the playoffs. All the games are now important and must-win. Depending on the opponent, some are more must-win than others. Tonight they'll play a team who has already earned their spot in the playoffs. They can afford the loss, we cannot. So please send all your good vibes to Calgary, Alberta, Canada tonight.

Be loud. Wear green. GO STARS!!

Have a great rest of your week.
