Looks like a blue sky today

About time.

Seriously, it's been so dark and dreary lately that I keep forgetting this is supposed to be spring. :/ Bring on the warm, pleasant days and keep the rain away for a little while. I'm getting sick of my raincoat. lol.

Well, the second day of NaNo-slash-editing worked out okay. Here are the stats:

•NaNo word count: 5,605
•First round edits page count: 44/88

I've managed to stay a little ahead of both the NaNoWriMo novel and the edits. Seriously, if I can get just over 20 pages of editing done today, I might just be able to hand in the novella edits tomorrow. That'll be a day early, and would give me the Friday to concetrate solely on my first draft. Fingers crossed.

I'm working on a very unforgiving schedule at the moment. I've got no choice if I want to complete (and win NaNo for a fifth time) these two goals. I've been squeezing in most of the other (domestic-type) stuff I need to do daily in the morning or afternoon. During the day, most of my time is divided into writing and editing. Which really isn't as bad as it sounds, you know? I just gotta stay motivated, that's all.

Oh, and I added some new words this morning. I'm now up to 7,036 words. Very cool! I'm really getting into the swing of this story now. I mean, I've been itching to get started for weeks, but when you start getting everything outta your head and onto screen/paper, you gotta find your groove. I think I'm finding my way there. 

Sunny and Silver might appear to be in paradise at the moment, but it's all about to change... 

After my walk, it's back to the edits. See ya tomorrow!
