21-Day Writing Challenge: Day 8

starship 1-5 kindleShort post today, folks, because it is very late and I am very tired. ;) Today was my day with the kids. They finished catching up on Supergirl episodes - all three of them love the show now. And then we had an epic D&D game. They're all playing wizards, at a school for wizards founded in Waterdeep (Forgotten Realms) to help train young people in the proper use of magic after the Time of Troubles. (Which I missed, 'cause I haven't played D&D in years, but the little I heard about it worked well enough as backstory for this campaign). So most of their adventures are classroom tests. Today was a maze full of traps that I ad-libbed my way through, with a rescue of some classmates from a minotaur at the end. They did a great job working together and had an awesome time.

Geeked from birth, that's my kids! Raising them right.

Anyway, I didn't get to writing until late in the evening, and my sprints as a result were more like back to back writing sessions. Managed to get in 3087 words over the course of an hour and a half at the keyboard, which is pretty typical. I also started working on setting up some promotions for "Accord of Honor" - which will be getting a promo period right around the launch of "Accord of Mars". Push Book 1 up the ranks a little and hopefully in the process help out Book 2!

Total to date is sitting at 35,398, which is well above my target of 33k by this day. That's a good thing, because I am taking tomorrow afternoon and evening off to go hang with friends, so tomorrow will likely be short a bit from my 6k target.
