So I just crossed the 25,000 words mark for the first time. Three days left. Oh, and it turns out the article will be in Saturday’s paper. Hey, I didn’t find out until around 5PM today, when I emailed the reporter about why I couldn’t find it in today’s paper. I can write 25,000 words in three days. I just can’t do much else. Except right now my body is calling out for sleep. I’m behind. Starting Saturday was feasible, but I was supposed to be to 31,250 words by now. I’m a little behind.
For those of you keeping track, if I had written at the easy and steady pace of only 1667 words a day, I’d be at 45,000 words today. Ha!
