Yeaaaaah.  I have no excuse to offer, either. 

The Orphan Queen: 36021 words --> Daily Total: 231 words
The Fall: 24 pages --> Daily Total: 1 page

LOLOL.  Okay, it's not an excuse, but I at least know what my problem is.  I'm in the middle of a real bitch of a scene.  It's one of those where four or five things are all happening simultaneously, where everything builds and builds and then comes together at the end.  It's a Turning Point scene in a lot of respects, and it's tough as shit to juggle.  And, I'm finding, especially more so in prose.  In screenwriting format, you can direct the reader's attention simply by what you choose to write and from what POV.  It's perfectly acceptable to just skip something and not show it "on-screen" to achieve a desired effect, as long as you're not continually abusing that or letting it introduce plot holes.  So anyway, I'm struggling with it.  Those less than 500 words in two days represent about five hours of writing, believe it or not. 

Sigh.  But onward and upward!
