Day Wordcount Commentary

I feel somehow off today. I've had this sinking feeling in my stomach all day, partly due to the drama at work, which will fit into the novel quite nicely. HA! Anyway, this is not the place for complaining about work, that's what livejournal is for.

There's guns in this novel. Good guns.

2 3518 Why I am pissed off today? It's day 2 and some people have listed their word counts at well over 50,000. Here I am, actually writing with no net, and doing a full time job, still trying to have a life, and being pissed off all the time, and there are people out there, mostly fucking teenagers who are writing garbage, who claim to have written 100,000 words. If they typed at least 50 words a minute for the entire 48 hours, maybe. But I doubt that. Anyway, it's going well, better than I expected really.

7 10304 Didn't write yesterday but maybe 30 words. I was feeling off. I'll probably make up the difference a few hundred words a day this week. It'll be ok, I haven't quit yet this year.

9 14224 Didn't write yesterday, clearly. Went to bed at around 9:30 in the evening, woke up around 5:30 am, and wrote for 3 hours, resulting in just about 4 thousand words.
