My goal today was to get within 2,000 words of day fourteen’s quota, which is 23,334, which means my goal was 21,334. What I got was 20,791 by midnight, although by 1 AM I managed to reach up to 21,781, which means I was only an hour shy of actually being on target again. I think my current outline will take me to at least 25,000 words and maybe as far as 30,000. I’m still not especially satisfied with the quality of the work, and I don’t think that’s going to change, just because this whole project is kind of Frankensteined together from leftover parts copied or discarded from other things I was or am working on. The point here wasn’t particularly to make the best work of my life, though. The point is to kill November, and I’m hopeful I’ll be able to pull that off.
