My process always goes like this--even when I do daily word counts. (Word counts don't solve plot problems and character arc challenges.) So I spent the last few weeks putting the story I'd finally figured out onto paper--and here's what I didn't do during the past three weeks:
I emerged from the deadline cave, blinking at the sunlight and wondering what happened to my house. And why are my pants so tight?
I'm happy to say, I've enjoyed putting the house right again (amazing how high I can stack things) and exercise is once again on the agenda. I'm sore, but back at it. I'm also working on proposals, and you know what? This time I'm certain that I can write a synopsis that my characters will agree to follow.
