Well, the dam has definitely broken. Apparently Fred has a lot to say.

Today I spent four and a quarter hours on writing and writing-related program activities. I revised a short story, then marketed the revisions. I revised another short story and returned it to calendula_witch for another reading. I did some research for the Sekrit Projekt. I wrote 6,000 new words on the Sekrit Projekt, bring current wordcount to 13,400, with a projected final wordcount of 20,000. A double Lake and change.

Also went to lunch with calendula_witch and the_child (which was ill-conceived, as we had to put up with a brewpub full of World Cup fans armed with vuvuzelas), spent some time at the Powell's mothership signing books and buying other books, and spent some time in an Oriental rug store watching calendula_witch shop.

The only reason I stopped writing for the day is that I'm tired, not because the tap ran dry. I have missed this sense of flow so much. God, it's so good to be laying down words.

Yay for Fred! I bet he's as glad to be back as you are to have him.
