Today was an incredibly difficult writing day for me. I haven’t been sleeping well the last couple nights and it finally caught up to me. This morning I literally would write a couple sentences and then zone out for a while. It was bad.
However, I did try my best until sheer exhaustion won out. I am about four hundred words short today, but because I’m so ahead anyway, I’m not super worried. Plus, hopefully tonight I’ll get a good night’s sleep and start afresh tomorrow.
Words written today: 1,230

Current chapter: Chapter 4
Time spent writing: 4+ hours (I wasn’t counting)
Current weather: It’s a lovely, bright day…why couldn’t this weather have been yesterday for 4th for July?
Tips: Lack of sleep and writing rarely work well together. If you get a good night’s sleep, you’ll be better prepared to write!
Extra notes: Gosh, one of my characters is so moppy and retrospective she’d annoying…I need a nap.
