Philip Brewer's Writing Progress

Finally some writing. I've been working on the hawk story (although the hawk has been replaced by a bicycle). I've got 4700 words, up from 3400 in late January. Probably half of the increase came from the written session during the cruise and half this evening, but it doesn't really matter.

I'm trying to keep the character's motivations in mind. Make sure that their actions follow from their desires and their natures. My main character has particular troubles in those areas, and I'm trying to show those. I like it so far.

I was feeling enough better this morning to lift weights, but now my cough has come back and I'm sounding as bad as I ever did. I feel pretty much okay, though, except for the cough.

Okay, enough for tonight.
