I did some math today. There are 39 more days until 12/31/14 (counting today), and I want to reach 80000 words in the WIP, so I need to add about 230 words each day. Assuming I work every day.
Which I probably won’t. So if I give myself 9 days off (more than reasonable with Thanksgiving and Christmas happening in the next 39 days), I have to add 300 words/day I work.
However, tonight I only did about 68.
But at least I did something! I got through several more scenes and cleaned them up. I need to get back to the new scenes in order to really up the word count, but I need to lay the foundation for them in these edits.
For now I’m off to bed so I can get up early tomorrow and work.
