And little by little I'm writing this trilogy.

After dealing for months with a combo of fatigue, world-travel, and the early stages of pregnancy, my creativity is finally beginning to resurface. The beginning of 2010 looks like a wash on the writing front, but I do have 5k to show for this year. 2.3K of that is from the past two weeks. frigg  helped convince me that I could at least put 100 words on the page per day. I have 3 non-writing days in there, but because I averaged 289/day, I'm still doing okay.  100 is so easy to get, too easy, so I tend to keep going, even if it is for a few words more.

As an additional goad, I've put the opening chapters to Witherwilds up on the OWW. I don't know if it'll work, but I'm hoping I'll feel encouraged enough to finish up the story. It might send me into a spiral of paralyzing depression, though. The shop can be good for that, too. :P

But twig by twig, word by word, I'll get it done.
