Day 1 down and I'm 2,500 words into my novel. Today's goal (and every day's goal) is 1,667 words. I woke up early this morning and wrote about 1,000 words before I babysat for my neighbor. While babysitting I wrote another 1,000 words. And finally I added 500 more words this afternoon when I got home. My first chapter is a bit cliche/boring but I hope things will pick up once the story gets going. As someone (an author, I'm not sure who...) once said, "You can't edit a blank page." So at least I'm putting something on the page -- I'll edit it later.
Fourth of July is coming up! My blog's new look seems quite fit for the occasion.
