So, week one of being forced to rest on the sofa (having had an operation on my foot) is complete and the total number of words written? Zero.
Frustrating? Somewhat, yes – especially since I am approximately 40% of the way through Story #3, desperate to get to the end of the main thread and then work on intertwining the rest into it.
Writing the story about a journey of, what is in reality, seven miles (in a straight line) as if it is of epic proportions is exhausting, so perhaps I am just resting up, having reached the first mountain pass, knowing that I am going to need as much energy as I can muster for the journey ahead.
