Progress notes for 10 June 2006:


New Words:  1345

You know, I remember when an average day of writing was 1750 words, and a good one was 3K. And it's not as if I feel like what I'm writing on this book is in any matter better than The Stratford Man, say.

It just takes me a million years to write it.

I wonder how my brain got broken.

Total Words: (actual / ms) 64,519 / 74,250
Pages: 297
Deadline: August 1
Words per day to meet deadline: 495
Reason for stopping: end of scene, tired.

One more scene gets me to the end of Ch. 12, and the time-break before the climax of the book.

And then? Stuff goes boom.
