I am very happy to say that tonight, a writing night, I reached the word count of 37,034. I’m actually slightly ahead of my goal. Which is absolutely fine, BTW.
This is a lesson to me. Even if you’re behind and feel really tired, sit down, do what you must, block out TV noises with earplugs or ear-buds, and ignore life, the universe, and everything. Just get the words on paper.
