I’m Happy Tonight

Since my last post, I re-read one of the fragmented beginnings of an idea and fell in like with it.  I wondered why I ever stopped working on it.  And then the characters began speaking to me!  Hurray!

I haven’t had a ton of time to work on it, just here and there scratching out what I could in my notebook.  But it feels great.  Really great.  I don’t think this is going to be a fantastic story by any means, but the fact that I can actually put my pen to paper and the words flow out without effort- well, I can’t even describe how it feels.  Fantabulous isn’t good enough.

I’ve gone from 4,133 words to 5962 in five days.  That’s the most I’ve written in that small span of time in months.  I realize it’s not a huge amount in the grand scheme of things (I hate the grand scheme of things, anyways) but it’s huge for me right now.

I’m super stoked!

A little thing that makes me happy: buying myself something I really shouldn’t spend money on 🙂

  1. I’m so happy for you. Lately I’ve been so busy I’ve not had a chance to really concentrate of things but I’ve been doing much better now – so I know how you feel, the feeling is wonderful.

  2. “Fantabulous” hehe I love this word! 🙂
    You go Rachel- this is great news! I know how amazing it feels, and as a fellow aspiring author who hates grand scheme of things, I say that is very impressive work you did on your book in five days.

    1. Fantabulous is pretty much my favorite word. I use it as much as possible, to the annoyance of most people I know. I got more work done today- more writing work that is! Yay!
