Well, today I made some progress on catching up to where I should be at this point towards my 50,000 word goal for the month. And this despite allowing myself to get sidetracked some; I had a couple of other things requiring my attention today.
So at this point, I am at 7920 words, which is still well short of my goal. 18,752 words, in fact.
Nevertheless, I managed to complete the 1667 words I needed for today, and lessen the shortage by 483 words. This makes me feel good. And gives me hope that maybe I can do better tomorrow.
