death march  

Trying to finish the book by Wednesday. Actually by Tuesday would be nice but that’d be 2 7500 word days, probably, which is unlikely. However: it’s early, there are no warriors around, and I’m running wars with myself until they show up because I need the externally implied discipline. Going NOW.

war #1: 399. must go punch down bread now.
war #2: 601. must go bake bread now.
war #3: 179, but it was a very short war!

And in the meantime, Richelle Mead gives an idea of why it is authors don’t go on self-financed book tours.

ETA: Warriors arrived after war #3, so I didn’t keep track anymore here, but it turned out to be a 4500 word day, which puts me tidily over 150K for the year. Almost done now…

ytd wordcount: 152,000

Hell, if I end up coming over there (which I'll know within the day-- just waiting for the US Travel office to come online), I'll word war with you. I have a study protocol to get done...
