Progress Report

(Me writing in Jimmy's ACUs *combat uniform*)
I finished chapter one tonight.  I feel like I just punched myself in the gut, but as my fabulous cousin told me tonight, it was a big hurdle.  A hurdle I most likely just tripped over, but a hurdle none the less. 

Number of pages: 10
Number of words: 2,922

Awesome! :) Keep going, pretty soon you'll be waist-deep in novel-y goodness!!

I'm kind of in your position too, trying hard to write. I just read this awesome blog post by Adam Young (Owl City) and found the message pretty relevant.
Try reading it when you get the chance:

@Tessie - Thank you SO much for that link! I absolutely love it. It's tucked away in a speacial place in my heart, and my favorites list.

Hope everything is okay with you. If there's one thing I've learned it's that the saying "What doesn't kill us makes us stronger" is true - but it might not always feel that way.

Much love,
