Still Going

Running a day or two behind, but I'd like to draw your attention to the word count, which has moved. No, not by 2,000 words -- not quite. As of 5 p.m., I have added an additional 1,680 words since I set my 2,000-word goal last week. 320 words to go, but I really think I need to take a break, because the next subsection is going to require some sustained concentration, and I've only got about half an hour left in me at this moment in time. Those of you who care can watch for update later this evening...

UPDATE, 10 p.m.: I blew off those last 320 words in favor of stocking the groceries, and making up a rattatouille soup and couscous to pack for lunch for the rest of the week. Tomorrow, however, is another day.

320 words?! That's ... calculating ... three double-spaced pages? Hang tough and congratulations, NPhD,GS!

Thanks, guys. Alan, what font do you use?!? In my count, 320 words is about one and a half double-spaced pages. Which makes me feel even crappier that I couldn't manage to finish it tonight. Early tomorrow, I swear.

Oooh, you're exactly right. It's usually about 200 words per page, isn't it? And you have no idea how long it can take me to write that much. Not knocking it off in an evening is _nothing_! And now you're armed with soup? Come on ... unstoppable.

you go girl! Soup is an excellent catalyst...

Yep. The soup turned out well. The words, on the other hand, still need to simmer a bit.
