Maybe I will get a few more words...the day is hardly over...but I'm almost caught up to where I should be to get 50K words by the end of the month. Today was a good word getting day...so far I have written 7,642 words. I took full advantage of the fact that there were no soccer matches on my agenda today. My novel is moving along. The good news is that I have a good rhythm going, every time I sit down to write, there is no struggle for words or ideas. I know enough about my characters now so that I can move them through their days. I'm feeling slightly lazy...all I have to do is write about 400 or so more words...then my total for the day will be 8K and my total word count will be at 26K. I have been at Panera for way too long. I need some fresh air. We will see if more words happen...but in the meantime...I'm feeling much more confident that I will get at least 50K words. Each year I always worry that perhaps I have lost the art and tenacity to produce many words in one day. And then a day like today happens...and I am reminded that I can indeed get all the words I need.
