I've been making progress with the sequel to Sven the Zombie Slayer and I'm now most of the way through the first draft.
That said, I'm finding it more and more difficult to write these days, not only because I'm swamped at work, but because when I do sit down to write, my brain is all foggy. I stare at the screen and can't quite find the "write" words. Ugh, puns, I know, sorry.
I think that for me it comes down to a lack of focus. I can't seem to find a quiet place (the jackhammers follow me everywhere), and recently the music has been difficult to turn off (because it's so helpful in masking the jackhammer noise). I just don't work well in other than silence...that and I'm probably a bit worn out from work.
I hope that Thanksgiving will bring a bit of a lull and I'll have some time to recover...and most importantly, to write!
