The Day's Progress - Thursday Edition

There are days when the words just seem to flow. I'll sit down and start typing, and before I know it I've just effortlessly written a couple of thousand words, all of it useable.

And then there are days like today.

I got a late start this morning, and then lost another hour futzing with my webhosting company on the phone, so had only written a few hundred words before lunch. The afternoon was no better. Everytime I paused to take a break, and checked my progress, I found that I'd written considerably fewer words than I'd thought. I managed to make my daily quota, but only by continuing to bash my head against the scenes until they surrendered and lay down on the page like they're supposed to do.

No sample today, as I don't have time to go back and pick out a suitable bit. I'll just give you the last line I wrote today, which out of context won't make much sense, I'm afraid.
“Go, damn your hide!” Galaad yelled, kicking his heels, and as the horse thudded across the frozen ground, the dragon above his head ate the wind, its tail coursing behind.
