Woo, 40 words! And...that may be all I do, depending on how work goes today.

I managed 2,888 words. I have the flu so I’m stopping for tonight. Yeah, great time to get sick, I know.

Day 1: 0 -- I'm on a roll!
Day 2: 0 -- Consistency! But seriously, I'll be writing today after work. I don't plan to stop until I hit at least 3K. That will put me behind, but not insurmountably so.
Total: 0

I did 530 words today (not counting the "Chapter Number" title) but I'm going to fudge the numbers, and make that count as my day one number (even though it is day two).

Edit: Just wrote another chunk, now my day two is a total of 514 (but really day two is 1,044 and day one 0 XD).

My total is 3,362. I did 1,810 today. It's been rough to stop myself from editing as I go, but I'm trying to just get the words down.

Slow start, despite being home today, but I feel like the rest of the weekend will be good for catching up. It's clear I'm not doing any more today. Most of these words were written in the animal clinic between 1 & 5 a.m.

Day 1 - 1300
Day 2 - 519

I was super-optimistically aiming for 2k on both days but meh, it is what it is, any wordcount is good.

Had to go back and do some judicious editing when I realized a big chunk of conversation involving the MC and another character didn't really fly... because the other character had expired in the previous story, I'd totally forgotten this tiny fact, d'oh.

Onward!
