Today’s high was around 70 degrees, so that meant outside work. I got up a little early and knocked out around 300 words before the work began. Then it was off to buy mulch and bushes and on to planting, mulching, pruning and more – pretty much all day long.
We ordered pizza later in the evening. Then it was bathing kids, homework and more.
Once the kids were down we watched Mad Men and then around midnight I sat down to bang out some more words. I really needed to try to catch up. I ended the day with 925 new words written. The manuscript sits at 58,046 words now – closing in on 60k. I’m still behind the 8-ball, so that means I need to have a surplus of words by the end of the week. I have about 12 days left, but I’m beginning to worry that won’t be enough.
