Hmm, so this is what it might be like to be a full-time author

I took today to seriously work on Shadows. Now, that's not to say I haven't been serious about my writing, but I've been fitting it in around everything else, to include the full-time job. However, I decided to make this weekend the big push to get this finished.

So, after taking the Daughter-unit to her vision therapy, I grabbed my car and hit the nearest B&N. Three hours and two iced teas later, I hit 3400 words. Came home and did some shopping/errands with wishweaver and then got back to writing after dinner. Added another 2,300+ this evening for a grand total of 5749 words for the day.

Go me!

With a little bit of luck, I'll try that again tomorrow and see if I can't knock out these last couple of chapters.

While I will admit, it was every bit as much work or more than my regular job, it didn't feel like it. I was really into the story and was surprised how much better the words flowed when I knew I didn't have to "cram" it in around everything else.

Now, if writing only paid as well as tech-writing. *grin*

But now, it's off to play a little Guild Wars and enjoy myself.
