begins with 2000 words! ——————————————————————————————>
Yes, the actual writing has commenced! And the little word counter is bleeding words actually written, not just the initial 1000 words I put in to make it work. And all with the following encouragement and inspiration:
Me: I am working on my book now, so please do not distract me by asking me to watch replays of the football game.
A Mere Ten Minutes Later:
Coe (standing over my shoulder): What are you so busy typing there?
Me: My book. Duh.
Coe: You are actually writing it?
Me: Did I not just say . . .?
Coe: Oh right. Am I distracting you?
Me: You do know that I am writing a book where annoying people get murdered, right?
Coe: Yeah, but the murderers always get caught and pay the price for their horrible crimes.
Me: That’s fiction, honey. Not always so in real life.
