- I'm getting back into the swing of things after two days of minimal writing.
- I'm starting to write faster which means that I should be able to catch up and hopefully get ahead tomorrow 
- Scrivener made me think that it had eaten my novel for a few moments today.  Very Scary!

Small Snippet of Novel:

     Steinwick was unsure what type of dosage would be suitable for the human body and as such withdrew a sizable dosage from the test tube in the syringe. He positioned the injector on his arm and took a deep breath. He was only seconds away from the most important moment of his life since he’d been diagnosed with Rook-Jerrard’s disease. This injection contained his best, his only, hope to live past the next six months. Senator Steinwick took one more deep breath and depressed the plunger on the syringe. He felt a cool sensation as the needle entered his arm and a tingling sensation that may have been imaginary as the compound entered his bloodstream.

     The next sensation wasn’t imaginary at all. A sudden paralysis overcame his body, followed by a sharp spasms of pain and then Senator Victor Steinwick felt nothing at all.
