After a rocky start today (117 words at midnight; pitiful), I went to the Worcester region’s kickoff party to support my friend Jess, ML for the Worcester region, and finally got writing. Idle typing and chatter, with a few word wars with Jess in between, brought me up to 834. Ugh. I stuck around until 9pm, and, with no further progress, went home.
Jess IMed me about half an hour later simply stating:
to write or die!
And so my word count was saved by Dr. Wicked’s Write or Die once more. (It got me through my whole first year, after all.)
Final word count for Day 1: 2186.
Now, onto tomorrow’s count!
