Okay, first off, I have NOT been lazy, although I did take a few days off from writing. I was not neglecting my novel. Worldbuilding took over my life, and I got a lot worked out. I finished reading the 2nd volume of The Complete Guide to Writing Fantasy by Tee Morris. It was so full of really helpful advice. I gave it 5 stars! I'm now in the middle of volume 1 of the same title, by Darin Park & Tom Dullemond. Don't ask me why I read them out of order. I just happened to grab the 2nd one first.
Had a great day of writing today. I'm in the middle of another story-within-a-story, and I find them so fun to write! They up your wordcount AND add so much to the novel. This one is a tale told to the children of the clan by a warrior about when he was young and went with his father on a trading journey and sailed on the ocean for the first time in his life, landing on an island and meeting members of a very different clan. So fun!
I passed today's writing goal and might have written more, but my eyes wouldn't let me. They're tired. One hour of sleep just doesn't cut it anymore. I'm old. I need rest.
When I write at night, I get stopped periodically by my cat, who insists that he must receive cuddles and reserves the right to fall asleep on my chest. If I ignore him, sometimes he attacks, and sometimes, like the other night, he rolls around and around on my bed, making little kitty "play with me" noises. Next thing I heard was THUD! I turned around to find him glaring at me from the floor. Goof fell off the bed again, but somehow, it's MY fault!
Of course it is.
