After leaving work at noon today, I managed to conquer 23k words, which brings me up to being only 6.5k behind schedule! Two hours of writing is all that makes the difference at this point. And with the holiday weekend only just having begun, I’m hopeful this success will continue forward as a streak. I’m at 360k right now. I can almost taste 400k (and it is delicious).
Thanksgiving will be full of food and people, and every year I take my laptop to whichever house we happen to be gathering at so I can get some words in. This year, however, my laptop is largely out of commission. (The screen hinges broke. The poor thing literally flops 180 degrees flat. Like a table. But the screen still works! Smart table?) I’ll try taking it over anyway–my sister, who’s hosting Thanksgiving, won’t mind, but I’ll have very limited places to set it up. For example, I can’t set it in my lap.
So really then it’s just a floptop?
In any case, I’m going to shoot for 20k tomorrow. In 2015, I managed to write 22k on Thanksgiving, but I’ll be conservative-ish and hope for the best. One never knows with family get-togethers
and . floptops
May you all have a fulfilling, festive, family-, food-, and fun-filled Thanksgiving! (Full of words, too.)
