NaNo day Twelve

Dreaming is an act of pure imagination, attesting in all men a creative power, which if it were available in waking, would make every man a Dante or Shakespeare. ~ H.F. Hedge

I dreamed last night that I got a contract with Harlequin... but the novel they accepted was only 107 pages long, and I had to add to it. And I had no idea what to write in order to make it the proper length.

Needless to say, I was a little stressed.

Do you suppose that has something to do with my NaNo novel?

I had planned on writing more yesterday, was in the mood to, but my DD was down in the basement having a wonderful time playing and listening to her music and I just couldn't write this really tense scene that is coming up next while listening to Toot Sweet or A Spoonful of Sugar.

Gonna try it today. All alone. In the quiet.


Today, I've managed 2,703 words.

My writing total is: 22,211 / 50,000

I can see how those songs wouldn't be too conducive to writing something tense. :)

Hope you got some quiet time today & feel like you're making progress again. Maybe taking a little stroll here is just fine, gives you a chance to catch your breath, gather inspiration, before taking off on a finishing sprint.
