Last night, I was able to write a seven-page scene between her and Dakota. No more petulant Millie, refusing to talk to me and staring up at the clouds, calling out the shapes she sees (although I admit, some of the shapes she called out were rather humerous). Nope. Millie talked. Dakota talked. And I, more or less, took dictation.
Millie's usually pretty easy to write, though. Her scenes are fun. And she really enjoyed this one. I mean, why not? She got to talk about bouncing quarters off somebody's butt. Or her desire to do so, anyway. Millie Jericho and her skewed games of heads or tails.
Yup, I'm pretty damn happy, and even indulging in a happy butt wiggle or two.
But now I have to prepare for an appointment with a friend, and later this afternoon I return to After School Activity Hell. The good news is two of the activities are an end-of-season soccer party and the final soccer game of the season. That means no more praying for rain until Fall.
Writing time (or hair-pulling time, depending on how you look at it) will be reduced today as a result, but I'll find a way to get some more work in on BMO and that synopsis workshop. Can't stop now, I'm on a roll!
MUSIC: None at the moment. Gotta go get dressed for the day.
PROGRESS: 7 pages of quarter-bouncing fun
WHAT I'M READING: Return of the Warrior by Kinley MacGregor
