WIPs and Chains

After last week's technological disaster, I had a pretty productive week! I wrote 4000 words a day, several days in a row and dayum, this baby is over half done! Then I had a little slow down as I realized that my hero's back story isn't sufficently heartbreaking. I need more motivation for him. So I got doing some research and brainstorming as opposed to actual writing. Which is okay, because that's all part of the process, right? Then things got busy with an all day chat on Friday with the Nine Naughty Novelists and an out-of-town weekend visiting family, and the progress came to a screeching halt.

AND tomorrow it's back to the day job so I'm not expecting any more 4000 word days for a while! Actually I can be pretty productive in evenings if I have the chance, but now I've been away from the manuscript it takes a while to get back into it - I need to reread most recent writing, get back into my character's headspace.
