Here’s today's progress on my fin de siecle gothic epistolary, now with Bonus! ghosts, guilt, and the threat of elder gods in the aftermath of two gruesome unsolved murders:
Deadline: None at present
New words written: 1048
Present total word count: 32,154 words
Things accomplished in fiction: Confessions and refusals.
Things accomplished in real life: Daily jaunt around the neighborhood with the dog; lunch with the husband; trip to the mall area to run some errands; laundry in wake of the cat barfing all over the bed to wake us up this morning.
Other: No, it's not a huge word count. It is Sunday, and I have other things to do, and I am allowed to be a little lazy - which is my favorite part of this Write Every Damn Day business: I can afford to say "only a thousand words today, and I can quit." Once in awhile, anyway. This whole "pacing myself" thing kicks ass.
Number of fiction words so far this year: 28,247
