Novel in 90

I'm doing the 90 day write-a-thon over in LJ. Novel in 90. 750 words a day.

I'll be keeping track of words. It's going to be the devil to assess word count when I'm doing revisions.

I did about 200 words today, spread out across the first five chapters. I've skipped right past that infamous breakfast table conversation. I will, like MacArthur, someday return.

Tomorrow I'll begin to create Chapter Six, presently empty. That chapter's going to hold an interior and domestic scene, probably involving Claudia. My first step will be to assess just what I hope to get out of that scene. I'm too tired to do that tonight.


  1. Good luck with the 90 day write-a-thon. I too often find life intruding on art, so I respect anyone who can keep going with such vigor and sidestep interruption!


  2. Let's see if I can keep it up for 90 days .....
