First off, thanks so much for the great response to The Writing Game! (And to my begging and cajoling). I'm really excited, though, as we are shaping up with a great field of writers, some very experienced and some brand new to fiction. And I know we'll all have a blast! Here are our participants so far (and if my ancient brain forgot anyone, please let me know):

Grrr. I voted in the Michigan Primary today. There was no one at the polls. I didn't have to stand in line. I didn't have to wait at all. Yes, it was convenient, but no, it wasn't the way it should have been. The Michigan Democratic Party screwed up big time. And I'm mad. I'll have more about this in a future post.
I did something I almost never do - I actually made last weekend into a "weekend". The results? I've gotten tons of things done this week and it's only Tuesday. I also got ideas for two new books. And that's one of the hardest parts for me as a writer - I'm definitely more character-driven in my fiction.
What does this tell me? That I need to do this far more often.
I'm a Meter Maid
There's a meter to the side of my entries. It says Progress on my as yet Unnamed Mystery. In the past six days of writing, the meter has gone from 30% to 42%. I'm happy.
Happy Tuesday Everyone!
