Writing, Family and More
To be clear, I actually read the wrong number on the 4th and thought I had crossed the 3k threshold. After reviewing things though, I realize I was just shy of it. Not enough for me to go back and fix it mind you, but I feel like I need to clear that up.
I didn’t get a chance to post an update yesterday, but here it is. Almost 5k! 21k total after 5 days is amazing and I am pretty excited about what the next few days hold for me.
Of course, almost 5k is quite a bit less than my wife wanted me to do. She told me I needed to do 9k yesterday. Instead of reaching that goal though, I reconnected with a friend who lives in the western part of the state and played some Dungeons and Dragons at my brother’s house.
Yesterday, I found I was having a hard time progressing with the existing story line, so I jumped ahead to the next one and that spurred me ahead quite nicely. I’ll be continuing that section today.
Today is looking like a busy day though. Basketball practice, probably some grocery shopping. Oh and making sure homework is complete for these kids who might decide that they have better things to do.
My informal goal today is to hit 25k. More would be better, but that’s 3700 words away, so that keeps up the pace and is a nice 25% of the overall goal.
