Yes, I've been a bad blogger lately. What with crash-reading nearly 30 novels, having IV Iron treatments, and another life event that I'm not allowed to blog about yet but is so exciting I can hardly stand it, I haven't made it here to post.
This week I'm participating in a BIAW (Book in a Week) challenge at latterdayauthors.com. No, I really don't expect to write an entire book in a week, but the point of the challenge is to write fast and furious and get as much of it down on paper as possible. No editing, no rewriting—this is purely first draft stuff.
This BIAW is coming along very well. Monday I wrote longhand while at the doctor and did some plotting and characterization. Tuesday I did more characterization and wrote 951 words; yesterday 1,031 words. Woot!
I'm so proud of myself, I may have to make one of those sidebar braggers.
