Seven days have passed by already?

Okay I admit it I missed my blog post yesterday, but I do however have a good reason for missing it. I had to work last night, I admit I could have done it yesterday before I left but I didn't really know what to write about. I pondered different ideas as to what I would write, but everything felt short. I could have wrote about my day, but nothing had happened yet. I could have wrote about how my story was going, but I barely wrote anything in it yesterday as well. Yesterday just wasn't a good day to get things done.

So here we are, 7 days in and wow what a stretch. I'm already a 1/3 of the way to reaching my intended goal for the month. I can't believe I'm a already this far in and its only the 7th day. I admit that I've been pushing myself to get this far. With my crazy work schedule and the fact that I'm more motivated at night, it makes it a real challenge. I'm not about to let up now, I'm going to keep at it, as I'm curious as to what my final count will be when we reach the end of the month.

As for the actual story, I discovered real interesting quirks about some of the characters. My protagonist Umi loves tropical fruit and berries while she hates apples. She loves kids, yet she hates to be hugged (as weird as that is). Her "love interest/fiance" if that's what you want to call him, unexpectedly became as masochist. Her friend and room mate has been living like a hermit for months after being dumped by someone (haven't figured out who yet). Her adviser not only dislikes her ideas, but he has this over fascination with cute things. She values her guards opinion almost as high as her own.

The plot of the story is going rather well. My biggest challenge so far while writing, is keeping the story exciting. I'm hoping to over come that challenge the farther I venture into the story. So the impossible happened this evening, while i was writing my muse just up and left which never happens to me. I'm happy that I planned a head and plotted out a couple extra stories for this month just in case, well one was actually my second story that I'm planning to write anyway. So I've moved onto a new story, I'm not sure how this one is going to go, but I hope it goes better than the last one.

How is your story coming? How far into the plot have gotten? Have you discovered anything new about your characters?
