Out of the house
I'd forgotten how nice it is to get out of the house to write. I spent the afternoon writing in a bookstore cafe, and got more done in two hours than I've managed in any three here at home lately. I'll have to keep this in mind.
I decided to take the weekend off from writing, and I think it was one of the best things I could have done. Writing everyday is an admirable goal, and I'm definitely not giving up on that notion, but it's good to get away--to purposely get away, not miss writing through accident or laziness or whatever--every once in a while. I'm eager to see what happens tomorrow, if getting out of the house will continue to be a productive thing.
Weekly progress report
I realized I forgot to post this yesterday, probably because I spent a huge part of the evening trying to figure out what crawled into my laptop and died. Something must have, cause it's screwed. :P Probably going to reformat tonight, but that's beside the point.

I can't decide if taking the weekend off was a good thing or not. I'm waiting for a rush of motivation this morning. Well okay, I'm not waiting for it, but I'm wishing for it, that's for sure.
