Day 12 - Beginning to Fumble in the Dark

I don't know if it's because of the steadily worsening headache I've had all day or if I'm just tired or what, but the two and a half pages I managed to complete today felt like much harder work than they should have.

I'm feeling a bit clumsy now, even though I have good foundations for my characters and plenty of stability in the plans for my plot. The story is moving along, but it's as though I'm holding the reigns of a stubborn horse and trying to keep it on the right path. I know that I'll need to keep this up if I'm going to be able to tell this story, but I wish it didn't have to put up so much of a struggle.

I know that every sort of creative process has slow-downs and bumps, so I'm not going to let today's fight for words get me down. Like I said, I did manage to get more than double my goal amount written!
