Weekend Wordcount

I usually take one day of the weekend off -- generally Sunday, but this week it was Saturday -- so:

302 words.

I think a big part of my problem is that my heart is still very much with Touching Indigo and my mind keeps gravitating to that story and characters instead. I suspect it's going to take me at least another week of hard slogging on Wayfarer before my backbrain starts spitting out stuff about teenage existential crises and faeries in peril instead of emotional repression and synaesthesia.

I also think that a bit more authorial self-discipline would help. Temptation Blocker is a wonderful program but I still have to turn it on the moment I get some writing time, instead of telling myself, "Oh, I'll just check e-mail and my f-list before I start..." and fifty minutes later I'm already tired of staring at the screen and my head is too crowded with random factoids to focus.
