Deadline: August 9, 2010
New words written: 1131 (barf)
Present total word count: 48,200 words
Things accomplished in fiction: Wrapped up the previous scene, set up the next one. Got whapped upside the head by the sidewalk; prevented California from being earthquaked into the ocean.
Things accomplished in real life: Noodled with day-job project for kind of a ridiculous amount of time; went for the daily run/climb; answered a crap-ton of emails.
Other: I actually wrote part of that feeble count yesterday – and then today, I went back and yanked out a bunch of the stuff I did over the last couple of days. The 1131 is just the net result. Ah, well. Better tomorrow.
