Two Things

One -

Writing when the words are not flowing is pure torture. Complete Hell. Like peeling the skin off your bones one agonizing millimeter at a time.

Two -

Forcing yourself to write when the words are not flowing and meeting your 1000-word goal even though you had to open a vein to do so is the best feeling in the world. Almost as good as typing T-h-e E-n-d.

Okay, I lied. More than two...

Three -

I've discovered the bathtub is where my muse lives. After the bloodletting I took a hot bath, locked the door and thought. And discovered the reason the scene I'd been working on was like pulling teeth was because I was writing it out of order. Two other scenes I'd earmarked for later have to come first. The scene will stay the same with a few minor changes, but its impact will be much greater with what has to come before. So all in all, not a lost day even though I felt like it while I was writing.

Oh, yeah. Word Counts.

Let's see...yesterday I got 1795 and stayed up until 1AM to do so. (Also researched a bit on the other book which I said I wouldn't do, but what-evah. I felt like doing it.). Today, barely scraped by at 1052 BUT I figured out what was wrong, so that's success in my book.

Did you meet your goal for the day?

I'm still not up and running on the word count until Tomorrow. The DH has kept be too busy yesterday and today as soon as I get off here. I told him I HAD to write the chapter blog and then I wrote mine and then... I"m sneaking a peek at everyone else's. Then I'll head out and bale hay!

But I did get 1000 in on Saturday only raking yesterday I realize I need to rewrite it. Does rewriting count? I mean the word count? Or do I have to start back over at 1?
