I had another good word day, although most of the words had to be written in the evening.
It was also a solar eclipse. I was at work and didn’t take any opportunities to watch any portion of it. Had it been sunny instead of overcast, I may have gone outside to look at the shadows from the trees. There were other reasons I didn’t watch (although the availability of a pair of solar eclipse “glasses” were not one), but none that I regret.
So, back to words.

I definitely started a new short. It should be around 10,000 by the time I’m done, which means I should have it done by the end of the week if I don’t screw around.
That, however, is not the speed I should be aiming for. Ideally, in the genre I’m writing this in, I should be aiming for 4,000-word stories every day. It’s not a speed I can sustain yet (I have no doubt that I could meet it, though).
I didn’t work on my longer work at all, which is a little bit of a disappointment to me, but I know it’ll be there when I’m done with this. This will be quick. I’ll get back to the longer piece on the weekend, and then maybe try to push out another short one.
The more you sow, the more you reap. That’s what I’m going with, here.
Wish me luck.
