Don't know if this word meter was a good idea or not...

Scary, I know...

The part in blue is the 4841 words I've written since Sunday when I started that crazy novel challenge so many people are doing. matociquala was right: Those words sure do pile up quickly. And 17% more to go isn't much, right? I can finish this thing, right?

(BTW, 230K is what I think I'll need to finish this. I hope, however, to cut AT LEAST 30K out on the last pass. 200K is still monstrous, I know, but it is better than 300K, no?, which I was afraid the book was going to end up being.)

"Work Week" Two Update

I wasn't as good at adhering to my schedule as I was last week, but I still got stuff done. Hopefully, I won't have insomnia to deal with next week. Hopefully, I won't have an attack of the lazies.

+ done my chores, but not necessarily as and when they needed it
+ made one cushion, three cushion covers (cushioning is taking forEVER, and it will only be finished after I get foam to do the seats. *sigh*)
+ did yoga sporadically
+ but went for four walks (avg 1.5 hrs)
+ polished 49
+ finished c50
+ started c51
+ critted two shorts
+ ruined perfectly good paper and wasted chalk pastels. (I fear I will never be good at pastels)
