Ack!

How did I ever manage to generate 25k words last year? Already behind in word count. I think I'm not supposed to be backspacing as much as I am...

Thanks! That was refreshing, just a few words of encouragement has really helped.

That's it--no backspacing! Don't think about what you've written at all; just go, go, go onward!

Trying not to, but Cumin keeps telling me I'm not writing exactly what he's saying and thinking! Battle scenes, ugh! That's all I have to say. But a girl fairy named Virga on an owl who might want to be queen in her own right? Now that might just work! Thinking of her has spurred on my word count. Also yoga helps.

Tell Cumin you'll come back and fix his dialogue later. Just keep writing. Go, Oz, Go!

Thanks! He's been so patient for the past two years, waiting for me to figure out what his story is, I can't blame him for trying to write his own dialog. Onward! His girlfriend of many years has some competition, it seems. A real 'battle axe' so to speak.

No, but I have to stay aware of them or I'll never make it to the end. I just have to generate words and shut the editor down. She's still kicking and screaming. Must. Drown. Editor. ::glug, glug, glug::
