Damn Squirrels

I had squirrels running around my brain scratching at the walls yesterday. It was incredibly frustrating that I couldn’t rein everything in and actually get words down on paper.

I manage to bring the total word count up to 4,843, which is a stunningly weak addition of 254 words. I did track down some references, however, and I got lots of other writing-related stuff done during the day, such as the contract work and research for other stuff, which counts somewhat.

It’s just annoying when a regular day of work yields so little concrete increase in the actual MS.

In about fifteen minutes I’ll be waking Liam up from his nap (if he isn’t already awake) for a quick lunch because my parents are in town for the afternoon, and we’re due to pick them up at the airport at 12:15.
