Today went better. Coffee was involved (for my characters) and 1482 words just flowed.

Better yet, I got to include my favorite local restaurant, and a local (fictional) band, and the first meeting between my MC and a character who’s been dancing around the periphery of the story for two and a half novels.

Well, at 40,123 words total on this one, I won’t really be at the halfway point until I hit 45,000 — but I’m pretty close.

Meanwhile, I had fun, my characters had fun, there was scary business, there was some sleight of hand — and you just can’t ask for a better writing day than this one. 

So I won’t. I’ll just appreciate that today was a helluva lot more fun than yesterday, and will roll with tomorrow as it comes.
