>I don’t actually have a horse, so take that title loosely – as in sticking my butt to the writing chair. I’ve been absent lately–from that chair and from the blog. I was dealing with a three week bout of bronchitis which kicked my butt. No energy. Sore muscles from the coughing. Little sleep. Needless to say, the brain was slow to work as well, hence the creative meter was hovering near empty.
I didn’t write. 😦
Then just as I was feeling better, I revised the first scene in Chapter 9 and wrote the second scene. Loved it! Computer malfunctioned and lost the entire file. (Did I mention my entire WIP is in one file? !!!) I had a backup, just not what I’d done that day, so I made notes, but reconstructing those scenes was slow going. I’m past that and finishing up the chapter. Will have to update my meter soon.
All that aside, I’m writing again. Thank God for GRW’s annual critique workshop. Getting my entry together and having to write a synopsis is what fired me up with renewed excitement for the story. I’ve got to finish it.
If there’s any interest, I’ll post a small excerpt this week. Anyone?
