Mood: The last 2,000 or so words were rough, so the mood is a little low, but it's ok. I gave myself permission to suck at the beginning of the month, and I think those scenes can be revised into something beautiful.
Inspiration: "A book, too, can be a star, a living fire to lighten the darkness, leading out into the expanding universe." Madeleine L'Engle
Goals as of today: 1,000 words today; 4,500 tomorrow; 1,000 Saturday; 3,000 Sunday. Big weekend.
Recent Favorite NaNo-WIP Line: As they neared the door, the Star Lines glowed brighter, shifting from the glimmer he'd seen in the streets to a thick, swirling sort of energy. Mason could feel the power in his chest and his head. It was like being around the full unit, only it wasn't coming from Greybar. The glow came from inside the house.
"Did you see that?" Mason asked.
The Captain nodded. "Maybe this won't be a wasted trip after all."
Non-NaNo News: I just realized that I'll be in Disney World in less than a month. This is so exciting!
Something Shiney (posts of fun things, other friends blog posts, etc.): There's a song I want to share with you guys. It's long, but I encourage you to listen to the whole thing. There's so much character and so much story in those short six minutes. It's the kind of character building and description I want from each book I write. And my word, this song wrecks me every time I listen to it. It's only been this year that it hasn't brought me to tears every time (only 1 in 3 now).
