I wrote 1500 words this morning, and I want that to be Enough. I want to live in a universe where that *is* Enough. Sadly, that will not get two books written by April 15th, which is really when they both need to be done by. Even if I wrote 1500 words Every Single Day, it wouldn’t be enough. It has to be 2500 words a day, five days a week, plus a couple weeks there where I get in 3K daily. And that doesn’t count the two proposals that need doing by April 15th, too. To get those in I really need to do 3K a day, 5 days a week.

Which really is not an insurmountable amount of writing. But *God*, I really do wish 1500 a day would do it.

Oh well. Whinging time over. Back on my head.

I was going to be cheeky and tell you to write shorter books, but reading the comments and looking back on what writers need to make books (no matter the length) work, I realize that that solution just doesn't work.

You can do it! /waves pom poms

*wry look* I'm glad you were not cheeky, because I can hardly express how frustrating that kind of comment actually is to a writer.

(Well. I could express it, and at great length, but then you wouldn't like me anymore. :))

Pompoms are much better. :)
