I was hoping to get my pages back up to 400 this month, but I continued to struggle for much of the month and didn't make it. I finished pretty strong, though (today was my best day in more than six weeks), and wound up with 390 pages for the month. (Missed it by that much! as Maxwell Smart used to say.) That's two months in a row my production has gone up after bottoming out in August. If all goes as planned I'll hit my million words for the year in late November or early December.
Most importantly, though, the past ten days or so I've been pretty pleased with what I'm writing and having a good time with it.
