It's official. I haven't worked on the book for three days now. The fog in my brain is starting to clear.
I have thought about writing, talked about writing, and even taken my characters over to Come In Character, where Marenya went to Las Vegas, Faldur had an emotional breakdown, and Nighfala spoke for the first time. But I haven't actually written.
It feels good. I am starting to feel free of this horrible pressure that has been weighing on me for so long. When I do go back to it, I think I'll be able to tackle it from a new perspective.
