Indigestion is not conducive to walloping word counts.
Last night, over 6,000 words including two character bios for hero and heroine of "Dark." Tonight, a puny 624 so far, though I did rewrite my Vision article. Fried rice left over from a sweet and sour pork entree is usually great the day after. But not lately -- I've been alternating protein and carb meals to try to build up my strength instead of having both at the same meal and that's been working. Fried rice didn't agree with me though. That is so annoying.
The other thing that's affecting my output is the weather. It's damp and something in the pressure has got all my joints and muscles spasming. I don't feel that terrible fatigue that I did from overexertion, this is something else. Just pain and an aggravating body awareness that's distracting as all get-out.
Frustration has got me feeling down, but it's hard to get energy into this or any project when I'm feeling this lousy. Wondering whether to just let it go for a while and relax a bit, hope my stomach settles and then pick it up again. Indigestion is something that will sometimes just work its way through and hit relief in fairly measurable time. I'd rather not make a big deal of nothing.
And the pressure I've got to finish this last little bit of Chazho isn't something I can do anything with till I get the last crits, not and do it justice. I have to be patient.
