The garden went from parched to drenched in that period too – so now doubt we’re going to end up with weeds growing at a rate of knots too, so I guess I’ll have to brave the heat and get out there, maybe, tomorrow.
In the meantime my writing today has been a patchy rather than continuous – mainly due to finishing the current work in progress with only 1,356 words. I’d realised the story was reaching its climactic ending, but I guess it took me by surprise. That’s probably because it’s been left at a bit of a cliff hanger, ideal for a sequel.
As a result I needed to pick up another piece to work on, but after some 490 words on that I realised I was starting to feel like the story was running out of steam – a sure fire indicator, I needed to put it back on the back-burner and pick something else up. That turned out to be the right decision, hitting 1,659 words on a third piece, and taking my word count to a very comfortable 3,505 for the day.
