Writing progress -- novel in 90

Words written today: 117 (notes)

Um... Oh, dear! Progress stalled. However, my average for the novel_in_90 challenge currently stands at over 900 words per day, so I'm happy as long as this is just a small glitch.

Mostly the absence of words was due to lack of time. I was teaching all day and then there were panicking students on the fiction writing course to deal with when I got home. Also extreme tiredness. I don't actually think my brain was in any state to produce coherent words today. In the Introduction to Web & Email class this afternoon, I clearly heard myself say, "Oh, that's just a little message to tell you that the browser has popped a block up."

I need sleeeeeep!

To make matters worse, I had run off the end of my detailed notes. I knew vaguely what happened next, but I had no clue as to precisely what the next scene should be.

I do know now though, so the plan is to do lots of writing on the train at the weekend. (Off to visit daughter and son in South Wales again.)
