Writer Update

For the last four nights in a row I have come home, sat down at my computer, opened word and done absolutely nothing.

So instead I went and mined some ore, crafted some cool robes and killed monsters on Rift instead.

Then I came back and wrote somewhere between 1,000 and 1,500 words of Darkened Daughter, leaned back and told myself I deserved Star Gate time with the boyfriend. [My new obsession by the way.]

For me that’s progress and quite an impressive show of self control. I’m actually managed to sit down and get some of my novel written for four nights in a row, and at this pace it might even by drafted by September.

I know! There’s even a deadline coming into things!

So for those of you wondering under what rock I appear to have crawled, it is a rock called Darkened Daughter and I’m afraid it’s quite, damp ecosystem is once again calling to be.

Farewell keyboard companions! Until my next escape.
