I have to confess that I, um, sort of forgot about Sven the last couple of days. On Wednesday I wrote about 1700 words. I don’t have a clue what happened on Thursday, and thanks to all the running around I had to do, I didn’t get any writing done at all on Friday either. On Saturday I cut about 500 of Wednesday’s words and then bumped the story up to the target 3000 words, so I guess technically I wrote 1800 words yesterday?

Today I edited the story again, polished it a bit more and sent it to my critique partners to tear apart. It’s still around 3100 though, so I really have no wordcount to add. Very soon I should be able to tell you why I had to set aside Delving Deep for this story, but I can’t yet. However, I am excited about the way it turned out.

Oh, and Curly got behind the wheel for the first time today. We took him to the same parking lot where Guitar Hero learned to drive his motorcycle. Considering his first driving lesson was on a standard and he had to deal with not only the whole process of driving but figuring out the clutch, it was a huge deal, and he did really well.

Since Gizmo Guy is back at work tomorrow, I hope it’ll be easier to get back into the groove and will have a better wordcount to report.
