This year I've beat any other try at this that I can think of. I'm 2 days in with 10,000 and a few words.
The general idea of the story has been rattling around in my head for a few years, and I finally got the hook I needed to actually do it easily and with out feeling like I was messing things up. Killing off Matalina/Cari a while back was that hook that made the story go on.
I'm doing well this year. I hope my momentum stays this way. I'm hoping for about 3K a day, mostly to be written while Kitten is at school. I might get a few more words in tonight and this afternoon, but we'll see the girls are being a bit clingy this afternoon, which doesn't surprise me with Kathleen's meds making her tummy all funny. But thankfully we haven't complained about the ears so that's a plus.
We see an ENT on the 9th.
