Well, it’s time to bite the bullet and resign myself to the fact that the writing vacation is more or less over. Sure, I haven’t quite gotten home yet, but I’m in the city limits, and I can only stay at this Cosi’ so long avoiding going home. I probably would have stayed in my little vacation town longer except that everything is closed on Sunday.
So here are my stats as of right now (obviously I might go home and write some more, making Sunday stats different).
- Thursday evening: 2120
- Friday: 6000
- Saturday: 6396
- Sunday: 3615
- Total: 18,131
So, wow, 18,131 words in four days. Considering that my last writing vacation had 18K words, and that was a whole week, I really rocked this vacation.
Want to know a secret? I gave up on Taylor-Made. I’ll probably go back someday, but I wrote those words on Thursday, and it was like pulling teeth. Sure, I probably wrote them about as fast as the words I wrote on Friday, Saturday, or today, but they felt like they weren’t flowing. And I had no idea what was going to happen next.
I sort of feel like I don’t know what’s happening next with Hero/Villain, which is what I started writing Friday morning, but when all else fails, I send my superhero after a villain (and just today sent my supervillain after one too). And plot-wise, H/V is way more developed than TM, simply because I’ve been sitting on it since October.
So I’ve been writing H/V and it’s been lots of fun. I adore my supervillain (who is the other MC) and my superheroine is pretty cool too. I will share on Tuesday, I promise.
Of Hero/Villain, I’ve written 16,011 words this weekend, which isn’t too shabby either. If I’d had a full week, it would have been nice, and I’d probably have gotten through the swampy middle, but as it is, I have a nice headstart, and don’t see me running out of plot anytime soon (but then again, I haven’t really had time to think about that, lol).

Lots of love,
