Goal for today: ignore the fact that it’s the Saturday before Thanksgiving, and act like it’s the Monday of a brand-new project with a serious deadline.

Yesterday I managed 500 words and a lot of thinking. I made some connections between characters, realized that part of my plot wasn’t working for me, and let some description be as bad as it needed to be.

Today I have to manage a transition — not usually my strongest suit — ending one scene and moving on to the next and start a new scene that I’m not all that sure about. But it’s the only thing I need to do today. Apart from writing this, of course, and I getting this done before I’ve even had my morning cup of mint tea.

Good luck to everyone else writing today!
