Day Eight - and so it begins, Week Two that is. I got more than my minimum words in today (1736 to be exact) and I'm still a little ahead of the game but it was such a struggle to get started. I bet I played more Spider Solitaire than ever today because I just couldn't find the words when I needed them. My story is so disjointed right now that I'm having a tough time ending the scenes that I have started. Tomorrow I'm having lunch with a good friend. I"m hoping if I try and explain this story to her it will help me to see what I have and what I need. I planl dedicate my writing time to putting together characters, short synopsis of scenes and hopefully an overall look at where this story is trying to go.
