Plugging along!

How has your 30 day writing challenge been going?  Mine had a rocky start, but I am pulling it together.  I find that I get a lot of joy out of writing, even if it is hundreds of words a day.  The story I am working on is a remix of my Nano book this year. It is fun to delve farther into my characters backgrounds, get to know them a little bit better.  The story takes on a whole different life when you are not so rushed to put words down on the page.

Just the other day I was trying to work through a plot twist.  My MC ran into big trouble that I wasn't counting on, and it really threw me for a loop.  It doesn't change the overall outcome of the book, but it sure throws a wrench in all the plans I had made.  Now I have to figure out how to get her out of trouble but stay in love with my Hero.  Oh the joys of writing!

I hope you all are able to pound some words out here or there.  I know it can be hard with the demands of life, but why not do something that makes you happy.  A few minutes in my imaginary world with my imaginary friends makes a whole lot of difference in the real world.  So do something for yourself and your readers and get creative!
