I think I figured it out: why I am able to write more on weeks when I'm busy. It's because when you're busy, your time to work on stories is limited, and so there's no time for the usual pooping around with story ideas and character background and pretending to outline. You got 30 minutes, tops today. What do you do? You just write something.

That, and I had a series of prompts set up to try to stretch my story more into the fantasy realm than it's been. A lot of what I wrote isn't "usable" story narrative, just me trying to re-imagine ideas I have for my story in more recognizable fantasy-like terms.

Anyway, word count: 1,901. I think I did well for writing in March. April I suspect I will go back to organizing all this stuff I've been writing.

I think you're on to something there. I do my best writing while swamped with other things
