writing and memes

The crash I was waiting for yesterday arrived today. I was SO TIRED. And so now I give up. I need to write 5500 words a day to (theoretically) complete this novel the day before I leave for ComicCon. Yesterday I ended up with a bonus 900 words, reducing today’s necessary count to 4600, but I’ve only managed 4100, and I’m going to leave it at that. Normal people consider 4100 words a stellar day. I, in fact, consider it to be pretty decent, overlooking the part where it’s not as many as I *need*. But I’ve been at a computer most of the damned day, and it’s turned into a beautiful evening, so I’m going to eat dinner, go for a walk, and watch a moobie with my husband. If I don’t manage to finish this book before SDCC, the world will not end. It will merely extend my small personal corner of Hell another week or so, and at this point, I’m not sure a week one way or another makes that much difference.
