I finally threw in the towel at midnight with 1123 words. I have Vivaldi’s Four Seasons Suite on today, looping with two variations on Pachelbel’s Canon, and the first five variations on Bach’s Goldberg Variations. I have ground to cover, and today will, by god, go better. Funny thing is, the same anguished fight for the words that I’m going … Continue reading →
Internal conflict. A mother who dreads the creature that saved her life, knows that she should be grateful to him for what he did, but is only grateful that he keeps his distance. A beautiful but dangerous land that is about to get more dangerous. Old gods who have no wish to be disturbed in their new world. And something … Continue reading →

From 1679 to 2234 in a burst, with cool shit happening. CONFLICT, goddammit. It’s such a simple concept, and so frigging hard to remember in the middle of the war, so to speak. Not done yet, but the end of the day is in sight. Thank god.
Don’t have the day’s necessary words yet, so I’m still searching for them. What came so easily a few hours ago has become an uphill battle — and the tireder I get, the more uphill it’s going to be. But I’m only a few hundred words shy of my goal right now, and I’m loathe to throw in the towel. … Continue reading →
Isn’t cutting into my writing time, but I am trying to figure out how to redo the weblog. Have most but not all of the template working. And a missing comments system.
Done for the night. And I like what I got today. … Continue reading →
