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 stopped to workout, I did the first of the interval sets (jumping jacks) and something rattled funny in my spine. After that, I was achy and distracted from my neck to my shoulders. This forced me to have a long nap to attempt sleeping it off (after pills didn't fix me up).

So I went from thinking I could finish this story today with me putting it off until tomorrow. I know how it's going to end and I'll get there in three to five thousand more words, I just don't have the energy to do it tonight.


9:45 AM - Woke up, breakfast (Red Berries again, though it's near the bottom of the box and all the berries float to the top of the flakes, meaning I pretty much just ate flakes)

10:15 AM - Writing

1:00 PM - Workout (cardio), lunch, shopping (hard drive failing... barking at me every time I save or a song changes, had to get new one), watched hockey game (boo)

7:00 PM - Writing

7:30 PM - Nap

9:15 PM - Writing

12:15 AM - Video game break (Fallout 4... I'm terrible, haven't gotten into a groove, probably only logged fifteen or twenty hours total in it, early ones were much more for me, or at a much more for me time in my life)

1:00 AM - Writing

3:15 AM - Blog post, bed

Being as this story is very short for a novel (60K is abut as short as it gets while still being a novel), and it's an action horror, it didn't take long to comb back over. I loaded it onto my Kindle

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

Very good day. Words came easily and my brain had a bunch of surprises for me. Shame it came on a Friday (which is movie night in my neck of the universe). If I get on a tear, it's possible I finish t
