Retreat! Day Three!

Wow! The time is going too fast.
Did pretty good with the word count yesterday until I realized I wasn't really feeling the new shiny. Hit a brick wall of "what the heck am I doing?". Still don't know, but am more relaxed about it anyway. Not sure what I'm going to work on today, but releasing myself from expecting a huge word count has helped. I have a feeling I'm going to have a long list of "what I learned at the retreat" when I get home.
Last night was out with the gang. There were 10 of us at Applebee's for snacks and drinks. We had a blast and it was really good to begin to get to know some of our newer members. We got back late and, of course, I couldn't sleep. I decided I'd sleep in this morning, because, heck, why not? Had a crappy night's sleep on top of the difficulty falling asleep.
I opened my eyes a few minutes before my alarm was about to go off and decided, yes, I was staying in bed. Drifting off again when there's a commotion in the hall. Then a knock on my door. I ignored it, figuring they'd go away. Then my phone rings. Crap. One of our members took a tumble in the shower. The ambulance was called. She had a really big knot on her head and her hip hurt really bad. She's at the hospital now, so we're waiting to hear what's up with her.
Update later.

It's so funny that you say that about word count/production. I was just telling a friend today that next year it would be nice if I could separate my experience from that number, take the pressure off. :)


Why yes, yes I am. LOL
