Wordwise, Things Aren’t So Bad

Did the math. You already know how the math goes if you’ve been reading this weblog for any length of time, so I’m not going to put the numbers up. But basically, if I do just a smidge under twelve pages a day (2392 words), I can finish the thing on November 15th, and still give myself the full month I wanted to do a thorough one-pass revision.

Twelve pages a day is not bad. It’s doable. Having done the math, I don�t have the vultures hovering over me anymore as I write.

I have five pages done today so far. I’ll get the other seven soon.

    YAY!!! GO YOU!!! I wanna become a writer…poet…singer…meteorologist…thing. 😀 Too many choices! Well, I’ll leave you w/ this poem
    Me.
    My mind
    scratched forever.
    I float, but
    not happily.
    I drift along
    like a ghost.
    Alone.
    I am happy
    with my friends…
    and somethimes my
    family.
    But alone
    I am a
    Ghost.

    (god I hope you read this!)
