Forgot to post. I do have word count, but it's only on a synopsis and bible for the four book continuity so it doesn't really count. Still I'm making progress and I love what I'm working on.
For research, I watched a specific story line in Love Actually (love the fast forward on my dvd) and Made of Honor. I love movies, but never have time to sit and watch any so this was a real treat for me.
Now I've got all sorts of prewriting forms out, the letter from our editor and a rough synopsis. Today I'll try to figure out the characters and what keeps them apart/leads them to the black moment and why they should be together. Oh, and I do have names for them, too. Jayne and Tristan! Fun times ahead!
