I wrapped up the night at 37,298. My place among the contestants has suffered a bit this week; after surging to as high as page 6 (top 300), I find myself tonight on the middle of page 17. That’s okay, though, because my word count is still growing quickly enough to hit the 50K mark by the end of the month. With the four-day Thanksgiving holiday coming, I’ll have plenty of time to make it across that finish line.
I’ve been slowed somewhat this week by the fact that I decided to decaffeinate, which was probably a tactical error. My brain hasn’t felt much like writing for the last 48 hours, although tonight was better. I think the worst is over; shakes are gone, DTs have disappeared, and I think I’m ready for a good night’s sleep.
