Hark, I have returned! My word count is utterly pathetic, but I'm back from the hospital and appear to be on the road to recovery from the surgery. Note to self: don't neglect your abs so much, because they do far more for you than you realize.
I think I'm going to try going back to writing on the computer, rather than drafting by hand, at least for now. I can type much faster than I can write, and I'm spending a lot more time in front of a computer for the rest of the week. I'm working from home (because my office is made of awesome and lets me do things like that for cases like this), which means fighting with the cats for lap-space. In general, the cats win.
I'm hoping the writing will pick up, as I'm getting into the plot and out of the set-up portion of things. At least, that's what I have planned, and so far, my characters haven't been fighting me too much. Of course, I've been giving them plenty of time to babble their way through introductions, so I think they're cutting me a little slack for now.
How go things for you all?
