WOTM Update: Another Day Leaves Me Aching

So I’ve been laying a-ha lyrics on you lately…

Another day leaves me aching
I try to wake up
But somethings breaking
Here inside me
Deep and hollow
A sound that no other sound could follow
I know the pain
Before the wound
East of the sun
And west of the moon

I dumped 5085 words into my draft today.  It’s the first stuff I’ve finished since I wrote my Black Moment.  I’m up to 44007 for the Sweat Challenge, and 80,720 for the draft.  I don’t know if I’ll catch up and finish on schedule.  I think maybe I’ve come to a place where I’ll be ok if I don’t.  How about that?

Anyway, what happened?  Well, Matt reacted to Alex’s reveal of her secrets.  Alex learned that something she believed was not actually true.  There was some sad tension between our h/h because they want to be together but can’t get past what’s just happened yet, and now they’re on their way to a meeting with someone they don’t realize poses a threat.

It’s been a rough couple of weeks for me.  I appreciate everyone who’s hung in and read my intermittent and whiny posts.  I can’t believe I almost didn’t post a snippet this week.  Comments to that helped me sooo much in giving me the kick in the pants I needed to get back to work. 

You never know how much what you take the time to say might mean to the person you say it to.
