I think I'll skip the illustration for this week, because it really has been like pulling teeth. It's a mystery to me why sometimes the words flow like water, and sometimes it's like working in a rock quarry.
Oh well. For this update I have 2,858 words to report towards my weekly goal of 4,000. I can't even claim those as polished words- nope, they're still in draft form. Usually when I go back over the draft my word count grows rather than shrinks, but with the way this week has been going who knows?
Still reading Parallel- I can't find the time to read as I would like this week. And also, I've had to find time to do some editing and take over the majority of household chores because my husband's working odd music biz hours. So all in all, a stressful week so far.
Also, a final appeal: for those of you who have days or even a string of them where writing feels really hard, what do you do to get over it? Advice and encouragement welcome!
