1k-a-day Day 3

The first 48 hours down. How do you all feel? It seems all of you have been rockin' the word counts! Congrats!

Now onto business! Day 3 may come as a shock to some of you. The weekend went great, but now comes the hard part. The part when our real lives take over and we have to balance work with writing. I know you can do it!

Tami's day 2 word count: 2,038
Overall word count: 27,760
Pieces of Halloween candy eaten: 4 (doubling day 1's candy count...not good)
Music: My Eels catalog as always when writing in Pence's POV
Mindset: Actually, today was a long, hard fought battle but LOVED it. I sat all day in front of the computer and didn't feel guilty taking a web-surfing break. It rained here in San Diego for the first time in I don't remember when. The greatest thing about day 2??? I FINISHED CHAPTER 10! I can't tell you how happy that makes me.
Tami's day 3 word count: 1,032

Okay Tracy! I'm throwing it to you...How did you manage on day 2?
Good luck to everyone on Day 3! Remember, squeeze in writing time when you can!

So it's day 3. Like Tami said - this is the real deal. Here comes...work, friends, making life sustaining meals, and walking two crazy Labrador retrievers so they don't get bored and eat another couch (I'm not even kidding). But we can do it. Because we're all freaking nutbar writers and we love it! :)

Tracy's day 2 WC: 1014
Overall WC: 2287
Halloween candy eaten: crap - nothing but Rockets left and Walmart changed over to Christmas stuff already - I hate that
Mindset: Really wishing we had a few more teeny tiny chocolate bars left in the candy bowl, but otherwise determined to meet today's challenge - chocolate or no.
Tracy's day 3 WC: 1206 words today!

Bring on the madness that is day 3!!! Go us!
