Whoa, is it Thursday already?

Seriously. It's almost the end of another week and I've fallen behind on my blogging over here. I'd been so good most of the month, too.

Anyway. There's a good reason for that. I've been busy writing up a storm. Or at least, that's what I was doing yesterday and this morning.

I give you my progress:

•NaNo word count: 53,915.

As you can see, I've met the NaNoWriMo goal already. I actually passed the 50k-mark yesterday afternoon, but hadn't finished the story. I did that this morning, after adding another 3k+ before my daughter had even woken up. Heck, she's still sleeping. But hubby started work super early, and although I felt like shite this morning, I wanted to get stuck into the writing first thing. It always sets me on a nice and very productive path for the rest of the day. :)

So, the first draft of Sunny & Silver's short novel is now done. Except, I'd like to open up the Word doc either later on, or maybe tomorrow, so I can read the last three or four chapters again. Whenever I get to the end of the story, it always ends up being a mad dash to get all the thoughts, scenes, and dialogue outta my head. And sometimes that means I leave something out and just need to give it one final read through before putting it aside for next year. I won't be revising it until 2011.

Phew. My fingers, wrists, arms, and shoulders are aching now. I need a break!

Have a great day.

PS. I got a really great review for THE SOUL DEALER: Redemption from the BookWenches. You can read it here. Yay! Thanks Teagan. :)
