After a long (and acceptable, given my circumstances) bout of ennui, during which I wrote really nothing except some rather fraught poems, I finally broke through the wall and got back into the old swing of things. In fact, I far exceeded the old swing of things, laying down a cool 7,000 words in my second novel. Included in the scenes I wrote: A food fight between pre-adolescent Hatshepsut and her jerk of a half-brother, and the big reveal by her mom that she has a male soul. Or, actually, eight of them. Surprise!
It was a fun day. My characters did some fun things, and we all had a very chummy good time romping together through the harem house and the Great Palace of Waset (aka Thebes). The good times aren't to last, though. Tomorrow sweet little sister Neferubity will meet her untimely demise. Adieu, Nef! You've been fun.
