Day 1 started pretty well for me, at midnight because that’s how I roll! Also because Nov 1 is a public holiday here so I could sleep in. Might have written more today but we went to the movies in the afternoon to see Thor: Ragnarok, and ended the day with the first half of Black Hawk Down, but 3k isn’t too shabby.

The plan was to write Green Fields short stories, but I still have a good 60k of the 8th book in the series to write first, so that’s what I’m doing right now. Bree’s not having a great day right now but that will soon change. For the worse, or else I wouldn’t have a story to write. Pretty happy with how things are going, though. I’m about 2 months behind my (mostly too optimistic) writing schedule but should be all caught up by the end of the month if things happen according to plan. The plan is to do double time, so 100k this month (60k novel, 40k short stories). So I missed the mark by a little, but not enough to be annoyed yet.

p.s. Thor: Ragnarok was amazing, might be my favorite Marvel movie so far! Might not be a cinematic masterpiece, but it was very entertaining, and they did a great job with both action and humor, story pacing and character writing, and great female characters.
