A close to 8K words kind of day... (Word Count = 25,652)

What November looks like...
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.
