Writing is hard work.

I'm in the very early stages of a new WIP, one I'm super-excited about. I have lots of notes, and the manuscript itself is at about 2600 words, many of which will probably be revised or cut. (Jumping in and writing an opening can be a great way to figure things out, but the eventual readers don't necessarily need to watch me figure them out.)

Since I know how much can change in a manuscript, I'm not ready to talk much about the plot and characters. But I will share that the setting made it absolutely necessary for me to spend a day doing extensive research.

Followed by extensive removal of sand from between my toes.
