Chugging coffee, writing words

I have found the key to writing. Copious amounts of coffee. As fast as it cool down and I can pour it down my gullet. Mark the re-write god is shining on me today. I have managed to plow through 2000 words of re-write today today in almost no time at all. I don't know how good it is. I will probably have to wait for the buzz to wear off but I got 2000 words down. At this rate I am not worried about finishing my YA book before NaNo starts. Heck, at this rate I might finish and write a novella before NaNo starts.

Just kidding. I am a glutton for punishment but I am not stupid. Maybe a long short story, if I have time.

Still have heard nothing from any publishers, other than Kate Sanger at From the Asylum and that was just a friendly heads up reply to a query I had written her last month. (brain working faster than fingers and backspace being used way to frequently)

I am raising my coffee mug again and saluting all of us. "Here is to finishing up projects before we plunge ourself into the madness that is November."

There's a certain comfort in knowing that I will only have one project (unless I get ambitious) in November.

Tell me about it. I have been trying to limit myself and have been doing a good job at that but I haven't been writing as much as I could be either.

Still. Debating. Nano. With. Self.

I'm basically coffee-allergic (with a chronic ulcer). I don't know how I'd make it...hurm

Can I borrow Mark this afternoon?

Jamie Eyberg said...

Go ahead Cate, I am running a chainsaw if the weather allows and won't be able to use him.

Will you toast me even if I'm not doing Nano? I've got my hands full finishing my WIP.

I will toast anything, who are we kidding, any reason to raise a glass to my lips.
