In the Novel groove

So I'm 1/8 of the way into my first rewrite and filling in plot holes left and right.

This morning, thanks to the intervention of Hot Cocoa and Scooby-Doo, I managed to squeeze 895 really good words and one incredibly disgusting diaper change (baby has started solid food and had 1/2 a banana yesterday) into TWENTY-FIVE minutes!!!! I can't imagine how much faster I'd write if....

uhoh---scoobydoo(library DVD) has a scratch....... um..... times up! I guess I ought to tackle the dishwasher anyway.....

But I'm over the bump-- I'm now at the point where I'd HAPPILY focus on the novel.... maybe I'll sell another story so I can afford a mother's helper one or two days a week.....
