That's the final tally of today's book writing. Slightly under my goal of 1,000. I think I'd make more progress if I didn't unwrite more than I write. I am happier with what I write on a more regular basis. At least we're well past "A dark and stormy night."

I know there are a few other writers who ping into here from time to time. You may be interested in a new bloglisting I've linked in the sidebar. No. Not Celebrity Scientologist Blog. That's for everyone. Author's Blogs is a place for both aspiring and published authors to link their blogs, and a place for everyone to read about the path to publishing from all points of view. It is not for people who's only writing work is on their blog, but it is for those ( Huck, this means you) who are working on a book, are writing query letters for their book or are stumping for their book.

Check it out. It's fun.

I am indeed NOT writing a vampire book. Nashville's own Sherrilyn Kenyon has that territory well and truly covered

Can we write the remaining 63 words for you?

When she returned, she found the samples stolen. Knowing that certain doom was imminent, she leapt into action. She practically gave herself a concussion slapping her Nextel to her ear.

"Michael, come now!"

He raced through the dark of night, ignoring stop signs as if they were mile markers. On his final approach, he cut the engine and coasted to a stop.

A thousand words shouldn't be too difficult. Faulkner put a thousand words into some of his sentences.

It really isn't too difficult on some days. I have my 3,000 word days. But since I've got other stuffs going on right now, I've not plowed into it.

Then again, I truly hope my book is nothing like Faulkner, except in terms of reception.
