Not much to report. I wrote a few hundred words on Lady C today. I did work out her father's family tree back to 1820, so I guess that's productive. (Invented a few interesting cousins. And it turns out that the previous holder of her father's title, whom the characters had referred to as "Great Uncle George", was in fact a second cousin once removed.)

Watched THE DAY OF THE DOCTOR. Liked it. But I don't have much to say about it at present. Perhaps I will after seeing it in the theater tomorrow. (S. and my sister and I are going to see it in 3D at the local theater. There's a small chance we might run into an ex of mine. Hopefully not.)

I took a lot of naps today. I guess, as they say, I needed it. I hope I can sleep tonight.

Oh! I am talking online to two men who seem nice, both of whom stressed that they wanted to make friends with women and then consider whether something else was possible. That's exactly the speed I want to go at. One is a Doctor Who fan in some kind of teaching profession (but employed), the other is a writer.

Writing is always good.


I'm at the point in my novel where in order to progress, I have to print it out to see it clearly in it's entirety. I haven't done that yet because I find it bizarrely intimidating. Sad.

Yes; I am up to 4000 words of actual narrative. This is HUGE for me.

That *is* an impressive word count. Congrats - it's always good to see results like that.

I imagine huge amounts will need to be cut out, but the important thing is that the words were written! And they are consecutive prose!

I am reading a book by Hillary Rettig called something like, "5 Secrets of the Prolific: The Definitive Guide to Beating Procrastination, Perfectionism, and Writers' Block". It's really good. It's enabling me to just sit down and produce. Not everything I generate is gem-quality, but as Julia Cameron puts it in one of her books, "OK, universe, I'll take care of the quantity, you take care of the quality."

(Having looked it up, it's here.)
