This past week was not conducive to writing. The day job not only took time, it also took more than its share of mental energy. Though I sometimes had time to write, I had no creative strength. At best I was able to make some revisions to a longish short story I wrote several years ago. It still needs more work, but it's getting there.
So this week-end I intend to dedicate myself to the novel. Saturday's challenge is to reach 13,175 words. We'll see how I do.
