Anyone up for a challenge?

I was running today when a woman ran past me and then parked herself about five feet in front of me. She was thin, and even though she looked like she ran a lot, she had an odd way of clenching her fists and then letting her fingers flare with each stride. [Full disclosure: maybe that was why she was thin.]

But let me say - nobody laps me! Especially not going down hill and when I have long legs! [Full disclosure #2: even if I am older and heavier.] I didn't want to run over her, so I crossed the street and still managed to get 25 yards ahead of her by the time we parted company.

My writing is dragging. I need to finish this book by Sept. 30, but life, like back-to-school night and various appointments, keeps getting in the way. Plus it's really hard for me to finish things, for reasons I don't quite understand.

But maybe if I felt like someone was challenging me, I would find the energy and discipline to power through. Anyone else want to try to write 2K words today? Anyone?
