Ten Days a Novel: Day VI

Today was tough. I know three or four steps ahead now and for me, that makes it tougher to write. I like when it's spilling and I'm completely surprised, which is how it gets working eventually when I know what's coming, but it's harder to get moving.

I have done it and I am happy. That was the most difficult writing task I've ever given myself. It left me beat and sore, as if I was physically doing something, but it's finished and I am equal parts

Ten Days a Novel: Day VIII

Today had begun with me flying. I got a ton of story down in about two and three quarter hours, but I must not have moved enough (this happens when I'm in the zone with anything), because when I stopp
