a novel insomnia

I get up in the middle of the night to keep writing my novel. Everytime I approach this I think there will be nothing new to write, but words come out. I am far beyond the point I thought I'd be at, with over 11,000 words this morning. My characters seem to want to dialouge an awful lot, and I was not really expecting that. I want to work at more description, and perhaps some character contemplation, if that makes any sense. Much of the dialouge is stitled, not quite right, but I can't make time for editing as this is not about editing and making perfect, but gettng the words on the page so that in the winter I will have a real first draft to work on. I truly haven't written at this rate in 30 years.


  1. It's an amazing challenge, and you're rising to it just as I expected, Myth. Good work!

  2. Wonderful Barb! A lot of things truly do 'write themselves'!

  3. So awesome! Keep it up!

    I'm still revising my 2nd novel... and I won't start the new one until this one is finished, even if that means I don't do my NaNoWriMo project until December.

    I will live vicariously through you until I can start on my own. I feel so inspired!

  4. So good to hear!!! Just go with it! Don't stifle the conversation. You can come back and "snip all the loose threads" later!

  5. Congratulations of crossing the 10000 mark. Well done! You're doing so great. :)

  6. Lovely. Does that happen every night?

    More words to you Everyday,


Thank you for reading my blog, and spending some time with me... I am truly honored.
