An update on NaNoWarmUp: my new book got to 50,000 words today. I’ve been writing 1000+ words every morning since the kickoff. The manuscript was more than 25k words when I started NaNoWarmUp, but it would never have gotten to 50k in two weeks at my normal snail’s pace. So, yay on that.

Also today, I got one of those rejections that sting more than most, because it came after the agent had requested to see a partial manuscript.

Fall down, get up. Eat some Halloween candy. Get back to work.
