Had a much better session this morning.
The characters were available and chatty. I’ll admit I had to wrangle them in a bit. They still wanted to wander away somewhat, but I roped them in and kept them close. Then it was stellar. And I had to stop in mid-sentence for two reasons:
1) It was 7:50am and I had to stop to get ‘the day’ started – I have to get dressed, make lunches, get the kids up, get them dressed and fed…and on and on.
2) I left my cue cards downstairs in my office, and I’m up here in my dining room writing on my laptop. I couldn’t remember something that’s on my cue card and so next time I write, I’ll make sure I have my cards near me for reference.
I wrote 1678 words in just over an hour. Not bad. Not bad at all.
I feel better. I feel confident. I feel like I could write ALL MOTHER FREAKIN’ DAY. But I very well can’t, now can I? Not today.
Such is the life of a mother who writes.
It’s not a complaint. It’s a fact. This is my life. I weave write. In and around the bigger-ness of the life I live come the words for the life I write.
No video today. Maybe tomorrow.
Happy Friday. Happy writing.
