Not literally, of course, as I’m inside and the rain is outside. But the weather has turned nasty once again, and with all the wind and rain I’m a bit worried that the power will go out.

Day 2 of JaNoWriMo – 2090 words today, 4277 total
My chapters are ending up rather shorter than I expected, which may be an artifact of my quota system. (I’m shooting for 2000 words per day, and the chapters are ending up 2k long.) More likely, I just tend to write things on the short side (I often end up with short stories at 3k), and chapters are no exception. Hopefully, once I settle into things, the chapters will take on a more leisurely feel and get a bit longer. I also figure at least part of it is a transitional thing, making the leap from short stories to novel chapters.
In addition to the 2090 words I’m counting, I managed another 253 words that I had to cut, and which I suppose I can’t justify including in my word totals…as much as I’d like to…
