Writer Interrupted, or, Duh

Writing didn’t go all that well today: I got stuck shortly after that snippet I posted below. Which is not good because, well, I need to finish this story. (At this point you may imagine me running screaming through my flat. Very much like the guy in Munch’s The Scream, only with more hair and less green.)

So I spent the afternoon refreshing my knowledge about the historical background to the story. Then I switched on my AlphaSmart, stared at the blinking cursor, and despaired some more. Finally, I caved in and dug out a new notebook and tried working on a different scene.

And lo and behold! — the words flowed onto the page.

But…

Will I be able to catch up and finish the story in time????

Stay tuned for more updates from Deadline Hell!
