As of this writing I am slightly behind par – just under 500 words behind. Considering that I had no cushion to fall back on, that’s not too bad. I haven’t done today’s writing yet, so I’m not sure if I can get caught up to where I should be or not, but even if I’m 1000 or 1500 behind by tomorrow, that’s fixable.
But other than being a touch behind on word count, Book 12 of The Academy of the Accord is going well.
I realized that I had dropped a thread so I went back and picked it up and wrote the scene (to insert into the proper place later) and it clarified a lot of stuff in my head. It’s going to add to the editing nightmare that awaits me, but that’s okay – it would be a bigger nightmare without it.
(I love it when conversations between characters lead to plots – and insights.)
Meanwhile, this virus is still kicking my tail. It’s descending into my chest so I’m coughing a lot, and my voice is rapidly starting to sound like a frog on helium.
But I only have one more shift and then I’m off for three days, so I should get a good cushion built up.
Tuesday will be my Catch-Up Day. It’s also my “Clean The Rat Cage” Day and my “Take The Folder-To-Notebook Project To The Library And Finish It” Day.
And there will probably be a load of laundry involved as well.
Wednesday and Thursday will be my “Build A Cushion” Days.
(I’m trying really hard not to have a “Waste A Bunch Of Time In A Doctor’s Waiting Room” day, but that might happen as well.)
