I'm playing a little bit of catchup as I realized I forgot to report my progress Friday night. I ended the night Friday with 23,154 words. I didn't really get a lot done at the Friday night write-in. We always eat at the Panera while we're there, so it means we don't get writing done until after we're done eating. And since that write-in is with friends, we typically chat a lot there, too.
I got into a groove toward the end of the write-in, though, so when we left, I wrote a little more in the car on the way to see our non-writing friends, with whom we get together every Friday night. I did wish for a little more writing time that night that I unfortunately didn't get.
I went into this weekend hoping it would be a chance to do some catch-up, although as you'll see in the next post, it hasn't provided that so far. I haven't been meeting par each day since my huge word count day, and it's been a little disappointing. I do have a lot else going on, which is part of it, and honestly, it's an improvement over past years that I'm making sure to write as much as I am, even when I don't have a lot of time. But I'd like to do another big word count day here soon to catch up on some of what I've let slip.
