I end Day 8 at 7,019 words and holding, with par for the day being 13,333. So obviously, I'm a little off the pace. It's okay though, because this is more output for this length of time than I have done since I was a teenager. It's all about finding the positives.
The story has gone pretty much according to plan throughout the first act. I would post an excerpt this weekend, except that I have a much closer-to-ready project to promote first. Punch-Drunk Bastards is currently being edited, and I will have a sample ready to preview soon.
I'm lucky in that I have a job where I can do the bulk of my writing. 12 hour night shifts rock for that reason alone.
