progress report

I was still feeling stuck last night and incapable of 1000 words, but barbarienne told me, "write 200 words." I can do 200 words, no problem. I ended up with a net gain of 263, which added a page at least. And I'm starting to feel my ideas coalescing in my head, just a little, in that way before I write some more.

I could force it. I just don't want to, not before I have to force it. It's easier and more fun to let the story flow out as it will. I'm sure I can exercise my "pro writer" skill of writing when I don't think I can, soon enough.
