Day Two  
Was awakened at 4:55 this morning with the answer for how to fix my first (extremely painful) two thousand words.

It made me giggle. At 4:55. Who knew that was even possible?

As I'm writing, I'll finish a paragraph and then pause, as if someone's going to tag in and somehow save me. Rpg writing sure does spoil a girl. I think I'm going to need pep talks and cheerleaders and maybe a whole freaking marching band to finish this. And don't forget the metric ton of caffeine. I think I had 8 cups of coffee, two coke zeroes and two diet cokes yesterday. My liver may not survive this story.

I like one of my supporting characters far more than the main character. Isn't that always the way?

In fact, I like several of my supporting characters more than I should, strictly speaking. But I'm grinning as I write. So that's always a good sign.

Have a great week, all!

Wow. That much caffeine would have me in cardiac arrest! It's all I can do to down one cup of caffeine and then my heart goes into palpitations.

Good luck with NaNo. You can do it!

I didn't start yet, but I can knock out 4,000 words today. I did it the another night for the D&G challenge. haha!

I'm here for you if you need a nano buddy/ear

*waves pompoms* I'm sure you can do it!

(And supporting characters are often my fave. It just means that your love for them will help develop them. :))

you can do it, Carrie!

And I'm just pounding the words out, jumping all over in the story. I figure December is for making it make sense... *laughs*

Ooh, are you doing Nanowrimo? (Sorry, I've been out of touch for several weeks). I was going to, but I'm in the middle of writing something else and I didn't want to stop. Next year, hopefully.

I think I usually like my supporting characters more. Somehow, they're just more interesting.

What is it about those supporting characters?. I think it has to do with the fact that they aren't under all that pressure of the PLOT, so they can play. :D

I've done NaNoWriMo the past two years, but it snuck up on me this year. I think I'll try to get some writing done though.

Yay, you and your writing!

You'v got a great supportingcast here ;)

Come on, Carrie, you can do it! Caffeine is bound to help ;)

Caffeine is bad for your liver?!? The horror.

Supporting characters hijacking your writing? Sounds like a fun time.
