A slow jog to start

Okay, I'm done for the day.

I started off at six a.m. and struggled to write a thousand words in two hours. Then I realised tea just wasn't going to cut it and made myself a large mug o' coffee.

It took a while, but the word count slowly rose in fits and starts. The hardest was the first line. I wanted it snappy, to draw the reader in, rather than boost the word count with passive sentences and extra words.

I'm hoping the magic continues. Tomorrow I come to the end of my dot points and from there, it's all about what the characters do and say and when they do and say something.

Should be a hell of a ride!

Oh, and to the Dallas Cowboys: MAN UP!!! I'm just sayin'.

Hey, not too shabby for a slow start -- 10,000 words! Go, Jaye!
