I Don't Have a Title Yet...

...but I've got the first 500 words of a novel written. I know it isn't much - especially compared to my blogger friend Stu's 70,000 word count (I hate you, Stu) - but it's a good solid start, and one that I'm over the moon happy with. I was never even certain that I had a book length story in me, but it's finally feeling like maybe I do.

So I'll be slowly chipping away at that word count, moving my story along. After all, every book gets written one word at a time.

Don't hate me, catch up with me. Or, more seriously, remember that said huge chunk of words was put together in equally tiny pieces.

That's great! I'm ready and waiting to read the first chapter.
By the way, did you see this article in the Sunday LA Times? It made me think of you and your musings:
