I started the romance novel today. My goal is 2,000 words a day but I've already got a 300 word deficit. Still, it's a good solid start. The first chapter is always tricky for me--I always sweat over getting the right tone and not infodumping in the first few pages. I'm sure I'll have hit my stride in a day or two.
I was worried I'd lose interest in this one since it's set in the real world and is full of boring old humans and no magic or anything fun like that. Fortunately, I included Jacob sheep in the plot. I did that primarily because I used to keep Jacob sheep myself, years ago, so I have some real-world experience to bring to the story. Hey, write what you know, right? But I like sheep so they'll keep me interested. Plus, of course, the hero is convinced (for reasons that actually make sense) that he's turning into a vampire. That lets me include lots of angst and pseudo-paranormal scenes. Fun!
