As expected, I succumbed to the normal November Martian Death Flu, which means I got nothing done since the kick-ass write-in on Sunday. Thankfully I ended up a day ahead at the end of that write-in, so I’m not as far behind as I might have been.
That still leaves me with four thousand plus words to write today in order to catch up again—and I’m not feeling it. I’ve got some ideas kicking around, so it won’t be a zero wordcount day, but I’m still fighting off the last of the cold/flu-thingy, so I’m probably going to zonk out relatively soon after I get home.
For now the plan is to get some wordsprints done using the titles of my old Stargate fan fiction as prompts. They may not end up in the second draft, but it should at least give me some world building details and maybe some what-ifs for the subplotting.
