A tale of two Saturdays

There is something to be said for just sitting down and writing until you're done writing.

I was working on Shadows today. Sat down, picked up where I left off on Chapter 11 and just buzzed through to the end of the chapter. Really pumped, good characterization (or at least I thought so *grin*), and the hardest part was actually getting the chapter to a stopping point.

So, I finished the chapter and decided to snag some dinner. I grabbed the leftover Chicken Rigatoni from lunch today, tossed it in the microwave, fixed a big glass of iced tea, enjoyed my meal, sat down at the computer

And I had nothing.

Everything seemed to be more interesting than writing. What I did write sounded flat and I fought with Chapter 12 for a good three hours.

AAAUUGGHH!

Now, I did manage a small recovery right about 2200, and all told, I hit 2206 words for the day, but I had hoped to get almost double that. Rassenfrassen sassenfrassen. But that was above the goal I need to hit and with a little extra tomorrow, I'll be right on track. Still, the monthly totals look pretty good. I'd love to keep this momentum up when Shadows is done and I get back to my "own" WiPs. We'll see.

And in other news: Central Missouri won their season finale in basketball, raising their record to 23-4 (16-4 in conference). They will be the #2 seed in the Conference tournament and barring something very strange, they should be in the NCAA tournament for Div II. Final Four two years ago, can they do it again?

Stay tuned, same bat time, same bat channel.

Your momentum on the SG-1 book is very impressive.

I think my momentum is called "panic".

Hey, whatever works, right?
