10:18 – I’m over the hill now, but there’s still about 8k to write to hit my proper target. 2k per day is something I’ve been especially bad about doing over the last couple of weeks, but I am determined. I *will* finish this manuscript if it kills me!
I’m playing a bit with my phases, reducing them where there were a couple for what was really one incident, which is gradually bringing me back down towards a reasonable manuscript total.
Unfortunately, my per-phase average is still waay above the target, meaning that unless I do loads of short ones, I’m still going to exceed the word count goal when I finish the story.
558 words so far today; I want to shoot for 5k but need to make at least 2.6.
17:20 – 1,082 current daily count. Three phases more should do it, along with making dinner, baking another vinegar loaf, and doing laundry. Bah.
