So that happened… in one sitting… in about two hours… And it wasn’t the solo incident I expected, because another short story punched its way out of me this afternoon, clocking in at a more reasonable 3k in two hours.
Needless to say, it’s been a whirlwind week. I wasn’t expecting much, to be honest. I’d been planning to force-finish the retype/edit pass of a story that just hasn’t been working all that well, and otherwise wasn’t sure what to focus on. And then Tuesday happened, and I typed so fast my fingers were almost numb by the end of that madcap session. Story just poured out of me like it was already written and just waiting for me to get it on paper. That does not happen often, and I felt deliciously drained afterwards. Figured that was it for zone-work.
Yesterday, I didn’t even write because Goldbug’s been toothing again, and he didn’t wind up taking a nap until right before dinner…on top of me. I could have probably chipped away at something on my phone, but meh. I was still wiped out from Tuesday’s inspiration-fueled madness and finishing the painful retyping Wednesday.
And today, my only goal was to start the opening of a new story. 2,600 words later, it was finished. THAT’S THREE NEW ROUGH DRAFTS IN A MONTH! 😱😱😱
So I’m spent, hence the short update. Glad it’s Friday!
How was your week? What’s been inspiring you? What’s been whispering in your ear?
