Petit a petit, l'oiseau fait son nid*

* Little by little, the bird makes its nest.

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.

Good for you!

I'm not on the OWW anymore, but I'll be happy to look at the opening chapers of Witherwilds if you send them my way. :D

Thanks, dearie. May I call in this offer after I've had the time to think about revisions? For the moment, it is all full-steam-ahead...
