Beaver Nation Is Back in Black!!! (And Word Count Update)

It’s that time of year again! Beaver football kicks off tonight. We’re ditching the kids and going to the game with friends. I’m looking forward to getting away for the evening.

Of course, that means I have to get my 1000 words in before we go.

And that, of course, leads me to my word count update. Yesterday I hurt my back picking up Gremlin #3 and ended up spending most of the day on the couch. Bad for my back. Good for the writing. I wrote 6168 words!!!! It would be better if all those words had gone into the WIP that desperately needs to be finished, but I had an epiphany about a new proposal I want to write and the first chapter completely popped into my head. When something like that hits, you don’t question it or push it aside. I ended up writing the entire first chapter of the new book (24 pgs) and then bounced over to write three pages in the WIP. I would have stayed up and kept going on the WIP, but by that point I was wiped. So today…the 1000 words are going in the WIP. Have to get through this scene so I can get to the good one which comes next. 🙂

How are your goals going?
