I spent a ridiculous amount of time trying to figure out why the pond is leaking - again. I couldn't find the source so I ran some algae all over the waterline then filled the pond up. It's still holding seven hours later so touch wood that it continues to do so. That time using my brain in one way helped me use it creatively in another way later in the day.
Only 800 words written today BUT I figured out some very important plot stuff. One of the reasons it takes me so long to write is that I have very complicated plots with lots of science. I love science. I was never good at it in school because of all the math. My brain doesn't naturally mesh with math. Not because I'm a girl but because I'm dyslexic with numbers. The more numbers involved in anything the far more confused I become and the higher the probability that I will fail in that task.
Things are moving along. I'm figuring things out, letting the science lead me to some good conclusions. Once I'm done the rough draft of this, I'll begin implementing the career plan. I have a Plan A and a Plan B. It's taken months of conversations with experienced author friends to come up with these two plans. I'll let you know what they are when the time comes. We live in interesting times as far as the publishing industry goes. There are so many options. At times, I've been overwhelmed with the options.
Here's another spot from which I wrote while in North Carolina. It was almost the perfect height, similar to my standing desk at home.
