I have no idea how I managed to write that many words. I’m still doing 10 pages (front and back) a day. But somehow, I’m able to squeeze more and more words. It’s definitely either a counting error or I’m… that good? 🙂 Adding to today’s hecticness, I started working on a new manual project at kender’s company AND had a teleconference class. I was hoping that I’d be able to just hit 25k today but instead I blew past it. Who knows, maybe I’ll hit 30k tomorrow? Guess we’ll just hafta wait and find out.

In any case I set Chad and Autumn alone for a bit today and helped their relationship bloom a bit. They’re chatting, drinking sake, and eating sushi in a fictitious bar on twenty-third avenue. I’m almost certain now that my slim outline will get me to 50k successfully but I have noticed that the story almost meanders a lot more than I want it too. That and I’m not going into as much sensory description this year as I normally do. I wonder if this is a symptom of writing longhand versus the ability to use a computer and close my eyes to really see and describe what goes on in my world.
