WALL-E rocked!

M-O (Microbe Obliterator) is one of the gorgeous robots in WALL-E. I think he's adorable. How awesome, an OCD robot. I love it!

As you can probably guess, we went to watch an advanced screening of WALL-E yesterday. It's due to be released here in a few weeks, I think. How ridiculous is that? Anyway. We saw it, and we all LOVED it. OMG. What a beautiful movie, and so romantic. WALL-E's so cute. What about the (probably unintentional) social commentary, huh? I know it was inflated for the sake of telling a story, but my gosh, aren't there people like that already? Lol. I won't go into it because I don't want to spoil it for anyone.

Anyway. I'm going to stop now. I'll just concentrate on how wonderful the movie was. Although, I think every politician and corporation should be forced to watch this. :) And wasn't it fun? Yeah, it was.

Well, today I got stuck into the first draft of the novel I plan to write during this month. I think because the beginning is so vivid inside my head, I got right into it. Actually, I was pretty sure that I was going to have the first chapter finished by the time I had to go pick my daughter up from school, but nope. I didn't get it done yet. But because I know where it's gonna go, it was okay to stop and then go back to it tonight.

Here's the word count so far:

My daily target is to write 4k. I'm pretty close, so it'll go over by the time I finish the chapter. At least today. :) Tomorrow, my daughter's not going to school because of a teacher's 'stop-work meeting'. Hopefully I can find the time I need to stay on target.

I'm getting into the heroine's voice. I mean, I know a lot about her and how she thinks, how she feels, what makes her tick, and even how she'll grow and change, but I wasn't 100% about her voice until I got the first words on the page. Very cool. This one's going to be written in first person. It's been a while since I've written a first POV. But I enjoy writing in first person, it's a lot of fun.

Okay, I'm going to get going now. Have a great day!
