Day Two

Today's count: 2576 words
Total: 4608

Not terrible, but still behind where I wanted to be by about 400 words.  And, boy, have I hit it!  I usually don't start writing anything until I have a pretty good idea about the story:  how it starts, often the ending, and a fair idea where it is going between.  This one was different.  All I had when I started yesterday was a vague plot description.  And today, I find I did not know what to write.  I don't know where this is going.  Heck, I don't even know where it IS!  I really should have taken the time to do a real outline, because I'm beginning to fear this is not going to be a viable story.  I still think the idea is good, but it's going to need some serious work to make it a fully fleshed story.  Not a good place to be in right now.  I'm going to plug ahead.  I have to, really.  I have nothing else even close to writable at this point. 

And this week is not a good one for carving out time for writing or even thinking!  Blood work today, piano lesson tomorrow, and dr's appointment on Wednesday!  All that just cuts into time.
