Kinda like tonight, for instance.  I'm working on the scene I started last night, which features the unsane aliens.  It's not hard to describe the actions.  But getting my head in a place where I can sort of understand the motivations of the aliens is a strain.  And then trying to figure out what to put on the page so that the reader has some idea of what's really happening in the mind of something that has a lot more in common with a praying mantis than with us just adds to the tension of creating the scene.

I'm weary.  But I did get 580 words done in a short writing session tonight.  Almost done with the scene.

Rolling total now = 85,647.
