Today's Progress - 1081 Words

I didn't write toward any particular goal. I just wrote a guest post for another blog for Friday, and then went on to write a fun scene for the second George and Karla book (which is tentatively titled "The Butler Who Did It").

And I feel particularly good about it, because I didn't realize it yesterday, but it wasn't necessarily the heat that got to me. I was having a silent migraine. My brain is only semi-functional in that state. (It's sort of like there's a loud buzz in the middle of my head. Which technically means it isn't silent, I suppose, but it doesn't hurt. It's just fuzzy.) It only let up this evening.

So, as I said, I feel good about it. And during the migraine, I actually got some good plot notes down. They even make sense.

Well done! Its a good feeling even if a little fuzzy. I don't have a specific daily word count although I aim for 1000 - if I do more or less I try not to worry about it too much. Happy writing!

Oohh...writing with a migraine. That's hard to do. Congrats on all your progress, Camille!

I'm glad it's let up some for you. I get migraines, too, and feel your pain!

But being productive! Wow! I can't say I've accomplished that before.

Thanks, all. My migraines don't usually give me pain, but they're still an issue.

I think I finally just recovered, and now I'm getting around to answering comments.
