Only today and Wednesday off, and then I go back to work for the first time since the tonsillectomy. Very sad about that. Not that I mind work, because I really don't. But it's work. I'd rather be at home. And I'm a little worried about keeping the writing motivation going. So hard to write after a 15 hour day. So I'm thinking of a new plot, inspired by an article on writing in bed that was in the latest Poets and Writers magazine. It's good to write in the open (here, at the cafe, around people and sounds) and also in the retreat (the bedroom). I learned while recovering that I LOVE to be in bed when I'm not sleeping. Futzing on the computer, watching movies, reading, writing, it's all good and comfortable. Not the best according to sleep experts, but I'm willing to risk it. I think I'll do my normal going to bed things after work, and then instead of reading before sleep, I'll write a little. Doesn't have to be a lot, but some. Just to write every day.
2. -1 hr (have to be at dentist in an hour)
3. Will work on J's office scene and getting on the road.
4. 10:31am, 1/2 hour, 68460, 929 words written
5. Damn! That was hair-raising. But the big action went well.
6. Tomorrow I'll work on finishing this scene -- not too much more time with her, need to switch to him, his finding out, arriving, looking. PS - what's going on with T and J? Add something to that scene?
7. I'll write at the cafe in the morning for at least an hour.
and PPS: Fabrizio deAndre is good, intense music for writing the fast, intense scenes (Khorakene and Dolcenera, specifically)
