Word count so far: 28 535 words
It’s pouring down rain. Beautiful heavy rain.
In my small town, they’ve re-schedule Halloween for tomorrow. That’s how intense the rain was going to be… and is.
It’s pouring like crazy, and the wind is having a blast. But it started at 10pm!!
What a ridiculous idea.
Next thing you know, they’ll re-schedule Christmas because it’s snowing!!
It’s hard to be understanding sometimes…
A ton of chocolate candy is sitting in a big bowl near the front door. What’s a writer to do? Pick up as many KitKat mini-bars as possible, go hide in the bedroom and… eat!
Speaking of individually wrap mini KitKat bars, I should take on another quest, to convince the KitKat people to wrap their awesome candy in something more environmentally friendly.
The sugar rush came and went, and now all I want to do is sit back, listen to the rain and watch a movie I know by heart.
So off I go, dear writer friends… Until tomorrow!

Very bad day.
Day job-wise and, turns out, writing wise too.
I find freelancing is very, very hard. Always feel like I’m doing enough, but then everything I try doesn’t work. Argh! I want it to work so badly.
Who am I kidding, I NEED this to work. Going back working a 9 to 5 is simply out of the question. It depresses me to no end.
I know, you only fail when you stop trying.
But that’s it: if things don’t pick up, I’m gonna have to stop and a 9 to 5 job.
Got a kiddo to feed and keep warm.
Winter is coming.
All that worrying sucked pretty much all the writing creativity out of me. I’m exhausted, body and soul.
Funny thing, I do want to write. And I try.
I simply cannot focus one bit on the work at end. And it double-sucks, because I’m at a very cute scene, where the Love Interest gets interested for real. He moving past his prejudices against teenagers (even though is not that much older; so arrogant, I know) and sees the main character for who she is : a unique, complex and indeed charming young woman.
Crazy how easier it is to talk about those two than having them talk to each other.
