Finally, after days of nothing, I got words! 1,041 of them over the past two days. It’s been tough getting back into the story. Even though I was caught up, and even though I’m excited about it. It feels like I’ve been visiting some friends I haven’t seen in awhile. Familiar, but a bit different. So I’ve been slowly making my way through the current scene. I have broken 41k which is awesome.
As for my HTWAS project, which I’m calling the Gaia series (subject to change), I have some coursework that I need to do between now and Sunday. It’s actually an easy thing, but I want to be in the right mindset. Lately I’ve been go-go-go and I wanted to be calmer. So that’s happening.
I want to write a bit on Awaken Me, too, per my agreement with myself that I’d work on something on the side. A few hundred words, nothing big, but enough to stay in the story.
I also had an MRI today which was….torture. I won’t bore you with the details, but I will say this — severe back pain + severe claustrophobia = one freaked out woman. And my anti-anxiety pill barely worked. Luckily, they gave me music to listen to (actually GOOD music) so I just tried to focus on that. It helped tremendously. Now we wait for the results.
The return of the stats! Yay!
Words written: 1,041 words/8,392 written so far
Words remaining: 26,608 words (it’s obvious that I won’t make it, but next round is looking good!)
What’s happening: The MC and her extended family are throwing her twin sister a surprise homecoming party.
What’s next: Some very, very odd occurrences (oh let’s see…the room turning icy cold; voices; MC getting another migraine; what appears to be a hallucination but isn’t….to name a few).
Feeling: Okay. Better now that I have words to report.
Eye report: Yesterday it sucked like a sucking thing, today it’s much better
Back report: Twinge-y. Better than this morning.
Chocolate consumption: WW snack, chocolate ice cream last night, M&Ms, a WW snack yesterday…..lots of chocolate. And we all know that it stimulates brain cells. *wink, wink*

great job on getting back into the words! And I hope your results from the MRI are all good.
Thanks, Fallon! I hope so too!
Congratulations on getting back into the words! It’s a great feeling to add to the story, especially after a brief hiatus. I try so hard to write everyday but sometimes, especially in the summer I find, it’s incredibly difficult. We should celebrate when we do write. It will motivate us to keep at it. Good luck with your multiple projects!
