The pleasantly unexpected

Inspite of my great optimism and expectations because of yesterday's productivity, it was beginning to look like I wasn't going to get any writing done. Thanks to the slow change of seasons, my wrists were bothering me a little bit, nothing to worry about, just enough to annoy me when I sat at my keyboard. I'd like to say they were sympathy pains for Mabel and her shoulder pain, but I know better, this kind of thing happens at least once or twice a year. So with Dragon Naturally Speaking open as a backup, and after actually doing the dishes out of procrastination, I finally sat down to write. I knew what I wanted to write, I just wasn't sure how much I'd actually get done. Instead of setting the goal of 2,000 words, I changed it to the modest goal of 500 words. Achievable and exceedable goals. Once I started typing, the pain went away, and I did more than exceed my goal. 

As for the story itself, I'm enjoying taking my time with it, seeing where the plot is going, experiencing it all through Mabel's eyes. I don't know how much of this is going to end up in the final draft, but that's not my concern right now. And I like that.

Word count: A whopping 2,094!
