tips from Writer on the Verge, a new source for writers whose staff were kind enough to pull me out of the bad mood, I managed to make the target. I passed the 10.000 word mark yesterday, can't remember if I mentioned that already.
Day 8 was relatively easy. Managed to let go of my plot and take it in a slightly different direction. Used a good tip from my friend Sam, wrote most of the dialogue first without the 'he said' and 'she said' bits and filled them up later. Good for flow. Anyway, reached my target just past noon and also did some catching up on the targets that I'd missed on Friday and Saturday. Win!
