Got the words, got the words, got the words! After a week of struggling to hit my marks, and after yet another rough start this morning, I suddenly connected to the story again. There was an almost-audible click inside my head, and suddenly I wasn’t writing three words and stopping, writing three more words and stopping. Suddenly the story was there again, and I did the final fifteen-hundred of my two-thousand words in about forty-five minutes.

And … especially sweet … I know where I’m starting back in tomorrow.
