Done for the night

Well, I'm done for the night.  I've roughed out 2 chapters and jotted down some stuff toward the end for a grand total of a little over 2000 words this evening.

I'm doing something else really different on this rough draft.  I'm writing it in 21st century vernacular complete with all my slangy goodness, "Ren headed back to the booth for some good good with a girl."  "OMG! Could her brother have actually done that?"

  It is making it really easy to get the gist and feel of the story down without getting bogged down in writing it the way it will be when it's finished.  After I have everything down, I'll go back and write it in "book."


Do any of you guys do that or do you write things down closer to the way it will read when complete?  This is my first time trying this.
