I decided this weekend to suck it up and get to writing, so I set the alarm for 4:25 a.m. today and got up and wrote.
Of course, Mitch decided he wanted to get up too, so I didn’t get started right away — I gave him a bottle and rocked him back to sleep. He’s got a nasty runny nose that won’t go away, poor guy.
And then around 5:30, Drew got up. He and Just Kitty sat bundled up in my office chair next to me as I ran through chapter six, making tweaks here and there, and getting up to speed on my characters and their situation again. I’d been thinking about my characters a lot in the past week, something I haven’t done in a long time, and that got me excited to get back to work. Even if that did mean getting up at o’dark thirty. I hate to say this, but things are about to get pretty bad for my protagonist Kait and her pals. Sorry ’bout that, guys. Just raising the stakes — hope you don’t mind…!
The Jasper men are gonna be tired tonight!
And so, the ol’ status meter returns:
Updated to Add: Also, I think I’m not gonna shave ’til I’m done with this durn novel, so you can also expect a Fuzz-o-Meter too!
