Considering the weekend Castle marathon (with the subsequent reviews posted here), it's amazing I managed to get any writing done on "Eiffel." But I did, surpassing 40,000 yesterday.
Monday (2/18), as you can see, was an outstanding day, despite the fact that:
1. I forgot my glasses. You should have seen me in the dimly lit coffeeshop, writing at arm's length, and
2. When I fired up my laptop in the aforementioned coffeeshop, my PC spit out an error message about not being able to start Windows, and then spent the longest 10 minutes of my life "repairing." But it seems to be fine now.
Yes, Monday was just one of those days when the words flowed. All told, I wrote 2,168. But to underscore just how in tune I was, I had completed just short of 1,000 by 11:00, and thought I would take a break. But then I thought, "Ooh! One more thing." Fifteen minutes later, I had another 415 words.
I feel I'm entering a little bit of rough patch right now. Plot-wise, the Tower is under way, and I haven't as yet decided how to keep driving the action. (I recognize the previous statement probably makes minimal sense to you; but I know what I'm talking about.) But I will press on, and hope that I find the words.
More often than not, I do. And tonight is a treadmill night; walking is usually good for 500 or so.
