Day 5

Word count today: 1,349.  It's coming easier now, now that I have nothing to lose.  I used to think I related to the character of the mother in this story the most.  I find that I don't.  I relate well to the teenage girl.  In fact, the words are just flowing from her POV.  It was when I was in the mom's head that I stumbled.  

I am into a rhythm now.  I get the kids to bed at 8 and write until 9, sometimes less than that.  Then I do my Pilates for an hour and try to get to bed. 

The great thing about this is that my hubby has been writing more too.  My son has told me he needs to write out a story he has in his head.  And my baby girl, she just rhymes every word she can...a poet in the making.
