Hitting Walls

So THAT'S what's been happening to me!

The Wall has been happening to me.

Not the Pink Floyd album...

The psychological wall, the one that happens when you run a marathon. It happened to me at 20 miles when I ran my one and only marathon.

That's about where I am with the novel, if you put it in marathon terms.

Yesterday, I got through the wall (over the wall? under the wall?) I think 'through' more accurately describes the effort involved.

At the end of yesterday I suddenly noticed I was ENJOYING writing again.

Today, I'm looking forward to writing some more.

That's the thing about hitting walls. It feels so good when you stop.
