Ten Days a Novel: Day III

May 15, 2018

It was another slow morning. Then a slow afternoon. The words really only came easily after my workout. Something about sweating like crazy that clears the head and allows the creative subconscious to build up a ready outpouring.


I also noticed I've mentioned some of the food I'm eating, but not all the food. I eat a ton of granola bars and drink about a pot of coffee throughout the day.


Based on where I am on the map (I have a start point and an end point I'm working with, physically I mean), I'm right close to halfway through the story. So, yippee.
