Feeling better today, and back to work. Still dealing with coughs and sneezes as my body tries to rid itself of the last of the infection, but I have a lot more energy. Unfortunately, I had to drive my carpool today, so I didn’t get to start writing until after work. Nor did I get a chance to work on any of the other posts I alluded to yesterday.

I did manage to work up a respectable word count, though. I set a personal goal of writing 2000 words today, and managed to get in 2,297 words. I’m now less than 4000 words behind where I should be, so that is a healthy chunk of recovery for the day. I’m still under 20,000 words, but I should break that barrier tomorrow. I will still have to rack up extra words for a while if I am going to finish on time. The goal as this point is to have no more days without writing.

The good news is that things have been moving along nicely in the story…

Casey wakes to find that she has been kidnapped by pixies and is being flown across the country side on the end of strings held aloft by dozens of pixies. She screams out at this revelation and the pixies panic! Crashing to the ground, our poor heroine tumbles, bounces, and skids to a stop in the grass. Driven to the edge of herΒ endurance, Casey breaks down and sobs openly.

At this point, two elves arrive to rescue the young girl from her captors. They have been sent by a mysterious benefactor to see Casey safely to the Primus, who will either judge her, or send her home. Of course, Casey knows there is no such thing as elves, or fairies, or even pixies. So what is really going on here?

Tune in next time…
