I had to do it last of the things on my list, but after writing and sending out a couple of emails today, I set down with the words, fell right into the story, and got 1215. As shown by the picture above, more than I need to hit my deadline, if slightly fewer than the 1250 I generally shoot for.
I love the words I got. My main character is in such big trouble, and her new best friend is about to be involved (next chapter), and this guy I loathed when he showed up in the first book is turning out to be a pretty decent human being underneath it all.
A lot of my old life as an RN is sneaking into this book in tiny bits and pieces.
Which is to say — my main character is having a helluva time. Because she isn’t the nurse.
She’s the patient.
