I poured over my scene cards for plot and subplot holes and themes today while waiting for the plumbing to be fixed. Tonight's assignment is to develop character names and do some more research. I'm getting excited, really looking forward to this.

I was really gung ho before... Now I'm afraid, very afraid. I've already changed the setting of my story from LA to my hometown of Chicago to avoid having to stop and do research.

Everybody says this is supposed to be fun. I've written a dozen screenplays. Why am I freaking out?

Freak-not! In a month, it will all be over.

I'm pretty excited. I've got my stack of 74 scene cards by the computer, have cleaned the house, stocked the cupboards and returned the library books. I just need to wrap up some unexpected business.

I don't imagine I'll be around DD so much for the next 30 days.

Good luck!

My third year in the trenches. My only advice is to plant your butt in the seat and write. Don't worry so much about getting it right. There'll be time for editing in December.

A mere 855 words from yesterday, but I had to wrap up some other business before I could start writing. I'm rusty at novel style, and I'm sure I'll get faster as I adjust. And when I can write on the weekend. It's one thing to come home from work and write when you're not facing an intense deadline and another thing when you have to shake free the stress and then jump into being creative AND quick.

I'm up to about 3,800 words, but I have the whole day free. I feel like I'm finally settling into a rhythm. I write faster on weekends, removed from the post-work stress. If anyone's interested, I've posted the beginning on my blog. Keep in mind that it is just a quickly written draft.
