Clawing my way back
I am still trying to catch up on my word count. I put myself behind the 8-ball by writing absolutely nothing for the five days I was in Phoenix. At the worst, I was behind by almost 8800 words (or five days). The last four days, I have been able to get in some extra work and have reduced the deficit to around 5600 (or 3 days).
It has been an interesting adventure so far, and at the end of each day, I have been surprised at what ends up on the page. But it is not getting any easier. I think that the stuff is getting a little better, but it is still a struggle. Certain things are coming into focus, but I still don't know exactly where it is headed. But I'm excited to find out.
I just need to keep chasing that purple line.
