I am forging ahead with my novel, although it ought to be known that it has not been easy, under the circumstances. I have typed 6800 words so far, under very trying conditions I might add, which only goes to show you how committed I am. That is how it is with creative genius, you know. When the spirit takes one, one cannot do otherwise but embrace it! When the muse is calling, the writer must answer! When the... I am sure you get the general idea. I am short on time here.
Mind you, it would all be so much more convenient (not to mention easier on Yours Truly!) if only I had a comfortable place to work! Yes, it is true that only a few years ago we completed
It is just that this desk...this chair... everything about this room, in fact, is simply not up to snuff! I am convinced that if only this chair was firmer and the desk at a slightly different height, I would definitely have logged a word count of well over 10,000 by now. It is really very irritating when the creative spark is smothered by such mundane considerations! But there you have it, my friends. You see what I am up against!
I am nothing if not persistent, and as TITK so fondly can attest, I will continue to work on my novel with the resolute determination for which I am renowned.
Meanwhile, however, I must admit that it is a little difficult to remain focused on the task at hand when the weather gods insist on throwing all sorts of crazy meteorological phenomena at my window! Just now, out of a clear blue sky, there was a sudden downpour of hail! How on earth is a delicate artistic genius (moi) supposed to get any work done with a veritable blizzard of hail;stones rat-a-tat-tatting on the deck outside my window? It is simply impossible! You see what I have to contend with?
Obviously, it is all very discouraging, but with my characteristic fortitude, I will press on!
Good day to All!
