Hanging flowers Cen Goth Huge Green5Somehow, I’ve managed to meet my goal, this week! Not just my goal, either, but the first day of my 3 day, wishy-washy goal (which I’m going to keep setting, nevertheless.) I have to be honest, a few things may be the reason for my sticking to the goal:

1) Chapter 14 is a short one (but shudder-worthy, I hope);

2) I finally got myself some wool for my first knitting project since returning to a climate in which I can bear to knit (craved it, actually) and;

3) I bought a coffee maker, last Friday, and have been diligently working my way through the sample pods of caffeine, lol! (Yes, one of those, but it’s nice enough coffee and it’s just sooo much easier than my non-pod espresso machine – which I will still use when I have time/patience for the whole ritual – so not often.)

I have found, previously, that my writing seems to flows better when I have a knitting project on the go, maybe it’s the reminder that I can create something physical with my hands, as well as stories in my head, maybe it’s just that I have something that is an alternative “default” setting, so I give my subconscious mind the time away from writing to do its magic. Whatever the reason, I hope I can keep it up, and I hope readers enjoy the results!
