I'd meant to spend some time starting the novel today but other things intervened. I had to finish revisions I was working on for the Captain Action writer's bible I'm working on with Richard. Then there was an 8,000 word story I was sent to look over. Then there I did a first draft of the full outline of "The Fox and the Scorpion" which I'm working on with Micah. Add a few church and other minor emergencies on top of that and the day's gone.
On the other hand, I'm starting with a long short story, so I could say that I'm already 10,000 words in already.
Just 9 more days like this and I'm done!
