On to day 2. I was happy with day 1, but day 2 was a bit better. I managed to write 3,330 words. This took a tiny bit over an hour (a lot of plotting had already been done, I know what belongs in each chapter – also, passive voice, bad writer!).
For some reason, I kept thinking about whether or not Idris Elba should be the next James Bond. In the end, I decided that while he could pull it off there’s another character I’d rather see him play. He can do an American accent no problem, and he’s quite physically imposing. Once Ben Affleck is done, he’d make an amazing Batman. Just think about it, he can pull off the smooth, handsome guy in the tux and he’s such a physical presence.
Anyway, that’s the kind of place my brain is at, clearly not that focused outside of my word count.
Also, I keep seeing people posting numbers in the range of 7k, 10k words. I thought I was fast… oh well, I’m good with it.
