    @jenwriter17 Hey, sorry we all disappeared. I had to go eat supper and take care of my dog.

    I’d be available to do one now if you wanted. πŸ˜€

    @eden-anderson Oh, okay. πŸ™‚ Well, I actually can’t do one right now, but are you going to be writing tomorrow morning? I think I’m going to be writing around 9 o’clock and going for a couple hours.

    Hey guys…so incoming rant. (I know, I know…it’s only the first day and I’m already losing it)

    So, I got up at 6:00 this morning, eager to go, full of anticipation and excitment. By 7:30 I had 1,000 words done, which is pretty good for me.

    But then I realized that along, I’d been writing from the wrong POV. Yeah, I know, where was my brain? Off on vacation, or something, obviously.

    Anyways, now I have to go back and rewrite everything and I’m feeling very disappointed because it’s the first day and I was gonna start out perfect and everything was going amazing and then this.

    It’s not that huge of a deal but it’s still kind of annoying.

    .

    .

    .

    SO YEAH. Now that’s out of my system, I’m ready to be happy and excited again. πŸ˜› How’s everybody else’s first day going? ❀️

    No!!!Β  Write now, edit later!

    My NaNo update: IΒ was going to work on my Christmas-y story, but my brain did not want to cooperate with it today, so I didn’t. XP Instead I rewrote the beginning of a different story I only just started a couple months ago (so I could get back into it), and got 734 words. That’s probably what I’ll be working on the rest of the month if my brain cooperates, so for anyone interested in what it is, it’s a type of Neverland-inspired story, where a young boy appears in my protagonist’s room and takes her (with her permission) to Neverland. She’s going to have to save fairies, and I don’t know much else. Guess I’ll be pantsing more than I would like this month! XP

    @edmund-lloyd-fletcher @jenwriter17 @evelyn Umm…guys? 😬

    It’s too late. I went and rewrote it all. Thankfully, I was able to save quite a bit…copy and paste here and there and that was incredibly helpful. It probably was dumb of me to stop and start over…I probably should have just kept going but I didn’t.

    I just turned up the music and plugged away. πŸ™ƒ


    @evelyn
    Thank you, friend. *hugs back* ❀️


    @jessi-rae
    Aw, your story sounds so sweet! Wish you the best of luck! πŸ˜€
