Camp NaNoWriMo - Day 9: Back on Track

I'm at right about 2100 words for the day.  I wrote a brutal kung fu fight scene between Sister Mary Severa and Webcap, the agent of the Gray Coven.  I was so into it I'd get up from the keyboard and pace around my house imagining what was happening every few paragraphs.

I'd probably be farther but I stopped to eat dinner and lost momentum.  Walking my dog got the old gears turning again though, like it normally does.  It's time for Cooper to stop having things happen to him and start making things happen. Everyone else might have other ideas, though.  I'm starting to think that this story might not be too terribly much longer than 50,000 words.  Not the first draft, anyway.

On a side note, I remembered why I stopped walking my dog while listening to my iPod.  It turns out that I sometimes strut in time to the music and I almost always belt out the tunes when I'm lost in thought.

On an additional side note, my crock pot is once again proving itself indispensable to the NaNoWriter.  Throw food in, turn it on, a hot meal is ready hours later.  Magic, I tell you.

Time to take a shower and then maybe get back on the horse.  I might reward myself with some reading instead, though.
