Excuse for stopping: end of scenelet.
Also: about a quarter to a third of a YA mystery outlined. Collaborative effort, that.
And it feels like I accomplished nothing. One of those days.
That's actually a good thing, because I've learned the hard way that these chunks of time when I suck and I can't write and no matter what I do it's not any good are just a sign that my subconscious has identified something I could do better. And that it's starting to do it.
So maybe the I Suck Week is a normal part of writerly development.
However, I did do an awful lot of work on non-SM related writing things. And I had the novel experience of a market that I thought had rejected a story a month or so ago emailing me to ask me if they could have it back for further consideration.
I said yes, of course.
