After Saturday's misfire, I was quite pleased to lay down 2,800 words on Sunspin Sunday. I also managed to have lunch with my mother (mmm, Russell Street BBQ) and go oh so briefly photosafariing with [info]the_child.

It was a slow start, 2,100 words in a little over an hour fairly early in the day. Then I knocked off and poked the outline for a bit. It bothered me that I hadn't made my 2,500 word minimum, though I often lag the first few days of (re)starting a project, so in the afternoon I sat down intending to write another 400 words, but got 700 more down.

So, yeah, the pump is running. Today we'll see if I can handle a full day's work and an hour or two of writing. I'm still not all here.

That's about twice my normal rate. Respect, sir.

Not to put too fine a point on it, buddy, but you've never been all here. :) Not playing with a full deck, a few fries short of a happy meal, etc. I think it comes from investing much of your brain in the creation of sci fi - you live in other worlds.

We're just getting a different subset of you.

Well done - glad you're back on the horse and not getting tossed!
