Problems are to the mind what exercise is to the muscles, they toughen and make strong. - Norman Vincent Peale
I'm managing to keep slightly ahead of the very minimum word count I need to stay on top of things. And my characters are beginning to come to life. I say this because they're starting to change my plans.
For instance: I had this great Friday night date all figured out between my H/H -- something that would prove to my heroine that they weren't so different. I had it figured to the last bit of food, the movie, everything.
Then yesterday, what happens? My heroine kicks the hero out of the car, both literally and figuratively. And it's Friday morning. And now he is MAD and has no intention of seeing her again. Has, in fact, made other plans for the evening. Likewise, she's sure she's right in her thinking and never wants to see him again.
Poof! There goes the Friday night date. Geez.
I wonder what happens next, because now I have no idea.
So far this morning I've managed 1,484 words.
My writing total is: 19,508 / 50,000
