It’s a Start

Thanks for your encouragement last week. I’m proud to say I finally sat down and wrote TWO WHOLE PAGES. For me, that’s the hardest part because the first couple pages set the tone for the entire novel and that’s the only time I truly struggle to write. Once I get into the flow of writing I can knock out pages like nobody’s business.

So, yay, the hard part is over!

*waits for you to stop laughing*

As usual, I’m not going to tell you about this story until it’s much further along. Like Beth said in the comments, I feel like I’ll jinx myself if I share too much too soon.

So what’d YOU accomplish this weekend?
