Clarion Write-a-thon Day 26

Today’s word count: 1283Cumulative Write-a-thon word count: 64853 Today was rough just because we were getting slammed all night shift with core after core. Drilling was going fast.

Today’s word count: 3422Cumulative Write-a-thon word count: 63615 Got a good amount of writing done while we waited for the rig to move to the new site for drilling.

Clarion Write-a-thon Day 19

At a hotel with ridiculously expensive internet access so I am posting from my phone. That means no fancy post format, and no favorite sentence since it’s too much of a pita to retype it. Got an okay amount of writing done. Surprising really since I’m at TAM and I had to say no to ...

Clarion Write-a-thon Day 18

Today’s word count: 3396Cumulative Write-a-thon word count: 43933 I did a second draft of my outline today, since I was starting to drift pretty badly.

Today’s word count: 2871Cumulative Write-a-thon word count: 38185 Finished up a really long section that’s probably multiple chapters. This part, I’m very pleased with.
