Lucky Day 13 & Day 14

Day 13 turned out to be my third zero day already this month.
But strangely enough, I wasn't stressed out about the loss at all. I was simply too tired to care. And this morning, I made a pact with myself to at least make the normal count today.

Day 14 gave up the goods generously.
Though still completely exhausted from the busyness of the day, I set myself up on the couch downstairs with pillows behind me and a blanket and laptop in place. Then I set the timer and did five 10-minute sessions to get the most out of my short writing time. My stats are thus:

First 10 minutes, 464 words
Second 10 minutes, 402 words
Third 10 minutes, 447 words
Fourth 10 minutes, 478 words
Fifth 10 minutes, 385 words (Can you tell I was getting tired?)
Total: 2,176 words in 50 minutes

Combined with my checking in on other areas of the novel, my total word boost was 2,335 today. Not too shabby for about an hour's worth of work. I'm a tad over 500 words from being halfway done.

Words to date: 24,443
Words to go: 25,557
