I haven't posted one of these for a few days, but the writing has continued. I checked earlier and today was the 20th consecutive day that I've produced new pages, which is unusual for me. I try to take off at least one day a week. But with that drop-dead date on the current book looming, days off don't seem to be an option. I wrote 23 pages today and should hit 500 for the month sometime this weekend. Don't know if I'll make the deadline or not, but I'm still trying. If I miss it, it won't be by much. And I hope that if I miss it I don't actually, you know, drop dead. That would suck.
