Another weak check-in for me. But, first off, I just want to say I am happy to see so many taking part in ROW80. Very nice turn out for this round. Second, I went against nature. I've started to outline. I've always been a pantser when it come to writing. This is odd because I am incredibly, if not painfully, scheduled and structured in every aspect of my life. I found the trick with setting up an outline. Notebook. I have notebooks stashed all over the house and in my Jeep for quick ideas. I pulled out one and sat down with it to outline. It worked. Something about longhand and no blinking cursor staring at me. I've always said I would never take my writing to bed. It has its places and my bedroom is not one of them. I'm weird, I know. But the notebook came to bed with me last night. With the help of the blaring iPod, I was able to sketch out something that resembles an outline. Then fell asleep with it. Hubby said it's safe to say I am officially a writer. He still doesn't read my work, but he is a little more supportive of it. That helps a lot.
As for the word count. Not so hot this time around. Things are still rough and the situation with Gram is constantly changing. The muse has been less than active as of late.

I'm not a fan of the falling word count. Hoping I can concentrate a bit more come the start of NaNo. I'm still not very optimistic about it this time around, but I'm going to try.
